Cameroon Douala exploration basin
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. However, the government is keen to monetise gas discoveries. 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. This project could create monetisation possibilities for other offshore gas-rich discoveries. Furthermore, Bowleven is looking for commercialisation options for two onshore gas discoveries it made in 2015, and growth of the domestic gas market is a positive development for other prospects in the basin.
