The last several years have been tumultuous for Africa’s oil and gas producers, and 2018 marked the first year of stability and real recovery since the oil crash in 2014. Indeed, 2018 brought by fresh optimism and a new wave of investor confidence that is expected to continue into the next several years.
“As the oil price is steadily rising towards pre-collapse levels, the outlook is positive,” PwC said in its annual Africa Oil & Gas Review released in November 2018. “Notably, 2017/18 has seen a significant increase in the number and size of final investment decisions (FIDs), demonstrating a renewed confidence in the sector.”
