Niger risk profile


Niger risk profile

Report summary

Niger first produced oil in 2011, but it has not generated wealth to improve living standards. Public sentiment has soured and protests against the extractive industries are common. Revisions to the mining and petroleum codes led to a higher share of revenues for local governments. Contract sanctity could deteriorate before elections in 2016. The landlocked country should expand production once a pipeline to Chad is opened in 2017. Finally security remains a large threat on all sides.

Description

Much of the world's resource-rich acreage tends to be located in politically volatile parts of the world. Sustainable growth for oil & gas companies often entails evaluating opportunities beyond familiar borders.

This country risk report provides risk analysis for the upstream oil and gas industry across the asset life cycle – from access through development and commercialisation. We leverage our on-the-ground risk intelligence to assess and forecast risk along 21 risk factors out to 2020.

Potential investors, governments and companies in the oil and gas sector can use it to gain a better understanding of the critical risk issues at a country and basin level (on high-profile basins) to define entry or exit strategies. Use it for opportunity screenings and to develop risk mitigation strategies.
