Gabon risk profile

Report summary

Gabon has a long history of IOC investment but risks are increasing, especially access risk. A new petroleum code toughens fiscal terms and tightens regulations over issues such as local content and gas flaring. The state is also taking a more direct interest in operations. Development and commercialisation risks are relatively low, but labour activism frequently impacts operations and accessing markets for the new deepwater gas discoveries will be a challenge.
