South Africa risk profile


South Africa risk profile

Report summary

South Africa's oil industry has been cast under regulatory uncertainty due to revisions to regulations that affect both the mining and hydrocarbons industries. New investments have halted pending the law's approval. Labour activism is high in all industries as is environmental activism, which has halted onshore shale developments since 2011. Facing the uncertainty, the nascent hydrocarbons industry will be waiting on the side lines until regulations are approved.

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.

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.
