Visiongain has calculated that the southern African oil and gas market will see capex of US$18.55 billion in 2015, including spending on both upstream exploration and development (E&D) and midstream infrastructure.
Southern Africa is the single largest region of Africa, a region that includes a diverse range of economies all at varying stages in terms of oil and gas industry development. OPEC member Angola and newcomer Namibia on the west coast are set to increase oil and gas production over the coming years with the continuing exploitation of pre-salt reserves. Mozambique and Tanzania are set to rapidly increase gas production to cater for burgeoning domestic and regional demand for gas-to-power facilities, as well as a desire to supply the resource-hungry economies of southern Asia via LNG exports. South Africa is looking to expand its offshore operations, boosted by successes off its western coast, as well as hoping to expand onshore shale gas development in the Karoo Basin to supply the needs of the region's economies. Lastly, Madagascar is set to become one of the world's most exciting emerging oil producers, and is currently vying for foreign capital along with other countries in the region to develop its large onshore, heavy oil and oil sands reserves over the coming decade.
