Resource commercialisation: How can Africa compete?

Mansur Mohammed, Head of West Africa Upstream Content, Sub Sahara Africa Oil and Gas

Africa has world-class discovered resources. However, commercialising its vast volumes lags behind other regions. To be competitive in attracting investments, governments need to remove barriers to developments.
Fiscal attractiveness, infrastructure deficits and limited domestic markets, particularly for gas, challenge operators’ willingness to invest. Providing clarity on terms and quick decision-making are levers at governments’ disposal to help maximise the region’s resource potential.
