Following recent hydrocarbon successes in the region driven by large-scale projects such as the 15 trillion cubic feet (tcf) Greater Tortue Ahmeyim (GTA) project; development of BirAllah 13 tcf; the Yakaar-Teranga project 20 tcf; and the 100,000 barrel per day development of Sangomar, regional energy leaders focused on securing investment to kickstart the hydrocarbon revolution in the basin.

While GTA (phase one) and Sangomar reach final investment decisions (FID) in 2018 and 2020, respectively, significant opportunities are available to investors in other new projects. Currently, GTA phase two is targeting FID in Q4 2022, Kosmos and bp are approaching FID for Yakaar-Teranga, while developer BirAllah hopes to emulate GTA’s success with an unclear FID timeline.
