Gabon Oil & Gas Report Q4 2014
The main trends and developments we highlight for Gabon's oil and gas sector are as follows:
The Gabon Oil & Gas Report has been researched at source and features Business Monitor International (BMI)'s independent forecasts for Gabon including major indicators for oil, gas and LNG, covering all major indicators including reserves, production, consumption, refining capacity, prices, export volumes and values. The report includes full analysis of industry trends and prospects, national and multinational companies and changes in the regulatory environment.
- While we expect some near-term gains in oil production, the longer-term trend for Gabon's oil sector is one of decline, due to both natural depletion at maturing fields and limited new production coming on stream.
- Although Gabon's deepwater potential offers significant upside risk to our view, a string of disappointing drilling results may dampen interest in expensive exploration campaigns. In addition, the country's new hydrocarbons law has materially worsened fiscal and regulatory terms for international oil and gas companies. Given the abundance of opportunities in the West African upstream, we believe Gabon risks driving investors to other, more attractive frontier players.
BMI's Gabon Oil & Gas Report provides professionals, consultancies, government departments, regulatory bodies and researchers with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on the Gabonese oil and gas industry.

Oil Market Outlook and Oil Products Outlook
Based on our country coverage of over 99% of global oil and gas production and consumption, BMI provides demand, supply and price forecasts to end-2018 for oil, gas and oil products
BMI Industry Forecasts
Historic data series and forecasts to end-2018 for all key industry indicators (see list below), supported by explicit assumptions, plus analysis of key downside risks to the main forecast, including:
Pricing: Oil price (US$/bbl, WTI, Brent, OPEC basket, Urals); Oil products prices (unleaded gasoline, gasoil/diesel, jet/kerosene - US$/bbl) at global hubs
Production, Consumption, Capacity and Reserves: Proven oil reserves (bn barrels), production, consumption, refinery capacity and throughputs (`000b/d); Proven gas reserves (tcm), production and consumption (bcm)
Imports and Exports: Oil exports/imports (`000b/d), value of oil exports/imports (US$mn - BMI base case); Value of oil exports at constant US$50/bbl and constant US$100/bbl (US$mn); Gas exports/imports (bcm), Value of gas exports/imports (US$mn); Value of gas exports/imports at constant US$50/bbl and US$100/bbl (US$mn); Value of petroleum exports/imports (US$mn); Value of petroleum exports/imports at constant US$50/bbl and US$100/bbl (US$mn)
BMI Macroeconomic Forecasts
BMI forecasts to end-2018 for all headline macroeconomic indicators, including real GDP growth, inflation, fiscal balance, trade balance, current account and external debt.
Comparative company analyses by US$ sales, % share of total sales, number of employees, year established, ownership structure, oil production ('000b/d), gas production (bcm), downstream capacity ('000b/d) and % market share.
Examines the competitive positioning and short- to medium-term business strategies of key industry players. Strategy is examined within the context of BMI's industry forecasts, our macroeconomic views and our understanding of the wider competitive landscape to generate Company SWOT analyses. The latest financial and operating statistics and key company developments are also incorporated within the company profiles, enabling a full evaluation of recent company performance and future growth prospects.
Recent years has seen an explosion of interest in the highly prospective West African Transform Margin. However, an uptick in exploration offshore Gabon has yielded mixed results, and this quarter a three-well deepwater drilling campaign by Ophir ended dry. Gabon's new hydrocarbons law has also materially worsened both the country's fiscal and licensing terms, and introduced a high degree of regulatory uncertainty. Unless the law is amended, we see Gabon lose investment to other, more attractive West African countries.
