Nigeria has seen a flurry of activity over the past month: Oando Energy Resources has finally completed its purchase of Conoco’s Nigerian assets; the Shell-operated Bonga Northwest field came onstream while ExxonMobil-operated OPL 214 was converted to OML 145; and Sinopec walked away from its acquisition of Usan. LNG projects around Africa had mixed fortunes – the new law for LNG projects in Mozambique moved closer to being enacted, but Angola LNG faces further delays to the plant restarting.
