This study report aims to assist energy E&P companies to diversify their portfolio and increase their natural gas supply sources and routes from African basins.

This EGI study report is a new evaluation of the African basins both onshore and offshore in terms of their natural gas pools and potential (Figure 1). The database is harvested from EGI archive as well as other survey reports and research papers, and includes geologic, geochemical and geophysical information, natural gas field development and production, and basinal and infrastructure maps (Figure 2). The report will enhance the E&P investigations and decision-making activities.
