Report summary

Cameroon's Douala Basin has long been seen as the country's secondary exploration focus, with production and reserves very much subordinate to Cameroon's section of the Niger Delta Basin fields. Most of the early discoveries in the basin were gas with small volumes of associated liquids, and these remained undeveloped for decades due to the lack of a local gas market. However, the government is keen to monetise gas discoveries, and in September 2015 Golar LNG announced FID on the Cameroon floating LNG project (GoFLNG). First LNG is expected in 2017 with feedstock from Perenco's Ebome Marine fields in the southern part of the Douala Basin, and this project might create monetisation possibilities for other offshore gas-rich discoveries. Furthermore, Bowleven is looking for commercialisation options for two gas discoveries it made in 2015 in the onshore part of the basin, and growth of the domestic gas market would be a positive development for other prospects in the basin.
