Hear from the Head of the Presidency’s Gas Task Force, Yann Pierre Albert Yangari, in the Energy Hall of Fame Podcast

He shared updates on Gabon’s exploration and production, new opportunities, and his thoughts and experiences in attracting new players in the country!

Gabon Oil, Gas and Energy opportunities

Gabon is greatly expanding its oil and gas industry, to repurpose produced gas and enrich its energy mix. This creates a series of new opportunities for upstream, midstream, and downstream companies as new projects and initiatives are established:


Gabon is investing on gas generators, building 4 generators in Bitam, Lambarene, Fougamou, and Mouila, and having plans for more as the industry expands 

Increased LNG demand:

Gabon’s new power generators require a constant supply of LNG and gas to continue producing over 8MW for the country, a demand that will only increase as more generators are built.

12th Licensing Round:

The Minister of Petroleum, Gas and Mining indicated the closing date of the submission of tenders, June 30, 2021. Petroleum companies interested in the acquisition of the 35 blocks identified within the framework of the 12th call for tenders to submit their offers according to this terms.

Flared gas repurposing:

New opportunities are created for gas transportation and storage, as Gabon is investing in repurposing flared gas from the oil fields, to power its generators.

Local Content:

Gabon is revamping its hydrocarbon assets, offering new opportunities to local companies. The concept of Indigenous companies was born, aiming to develop locals’ participaction in the development of the oil and gas sector, as well as the nation.

New Hydrocarbons Law:

The Government of Gabon officially published its new Hydrocarbons Law on the 22nd July 2019, in its  ”Journal Officiel n°28”
