Report summary

Explorers in Congo's Lower Congo Basin have switched to new plays in recent years. The long standing Sendji play which still accounts for most production is looking extremely mature. Recent notable success such as the Nene Marine find has been in the pre salt play in shallow water. Standalone discoveries here can be brought online at relatively low cost achieving good returns. New discoveries in deepwater can leverage existing infrastructure.
