Cameroon Douala exploration basin

Report summary

Cameroon's Douala Basin has long been seen as the country's secondary exploration focus, with production and reserves 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. In May 2018, Golar LNG achieved First LNG from the Cameroon floating LNG project (GoFLNG), with feedstock from Perenco's Ebome Marine fields in the southern part of the Douala Basin. Full details are available to download in excel and pdf format.
