Report summary

Wood Mackenzie's sister company, Verisk Maplecroft, examines the latest developments in the Republic of Congo. President Dénis Sassou-Nguesso’s contentious election victory in March 2016 has resulted in the return of a low-intensity conflict to the Pool region. The conflict is extremely unlikely to directly impact oil and gas operations. Yet fighting between government forces and the ex-Ninja rebels has lingered on for more than a year, devastating the country’s economy, its infrastructure and the morale of its army. The situation is likely to worsen in the coming months, generating indirect implications for oil and gas companies.
