The energy transition will hit Sub-Saharan Africa hard – is it ready?

Report summary

Sub-Saharan Africa produces 8% of the world's oil and gas. Nigeria, Angola, Congo and Equatorial Guinea are dependent on oil and gas exports but also dependent on IOC investment to produce it. As oil and gas companies face mounting pressure to switch to lower carbon energies, Sub-Saharan Africa will find it more difficult to attract investment. What will the impact be on producers in the region, what changes can governments make to stay competitive, and who will invest in the region in the future?
