Cameroon Oil & Gas Report

BMI View: Cameroon is a small producer of oil and a nascent gas producer. Several small projects coming online should boost the hydrocarbons production over 2017-2018, but following that the production will decline until the end of the forecast. BMI believes that Cameroon could stand to benefit from lower oil prices as oil companies refocus investments towards more proven offshore plays. However, declining oil revenues could weigh on downstream developments as the government struggles to finance large-scale projects such as SONARA refinery development. Recent announcement that Perenco Cameroon is close to finalising a commercial deal with Golar LN G for construction of floating LNG facility can add upside to our gas production fore cast.

  • Ongoing exploration provides much-needed upside risk to Cameroon's oil reserves. The country's offshore basins are the most prospective, with the Rio del Rey Basin to attract the most interest. However, Cameroon lacks access to the deepwater acreage where sub-salt prospects running from Sierra Leone to Angola have attracted interest from international oil companies and several smaller players.

  • Oil production came in at 81,000b/d in 2014, a 29.1% increase from 2013 production but remains shy of the projected 82,000b/d by Cameroon's national oil company SNH. This was the first sizeable...
