“We have been working to transform our organisation and operations to position ourselves for the current national and global challenges in the hydrocarbons sector.” 

Patrichi Christian Tanasa, CEO, Gabon Oil

Over the past five years, Gabon has been severely impacted by the drop in oil prices and declines in hydrocarbons production. However, the adoption of a new hydrocarbons code is poised to make all the difference in attracting new investment to the country for its 12th bidding round. While challenges remain, the outlook is positive for the country with newcomers entering the market.

“We in the industry have always believed that Rabi cannot be alone. There must be something else, but you need money and technology to find it.” 

Charles Tchen, General Manager of Independent Petroleum Consultants

The Oil & Gas Year Gabon 2019 is focused on Gabon Oil’s upstream and downstream development plan, designed to support the growth of the national hydrocarbons industry and to ensure the NOC becomes a major African player.

This seventh edition of The Oil & Gas Year Gabon provides foresight to investors and companies looking at strategic growth opportunities in the country, at a time when new policies and public policy changes are reshaping an important African energy industry.
