(in West Africa)



AREA (on): 322,500 km2

OIL PEAK: 2007


The waters of Cote d’Ivoire overlie the Abidjan basin. The first of a series of small discoveries was brought onstream in 1982. Output since was modest until 2003 when new floating technologies began to be applied. Furthermore deepwater exploration has identified new potential such that considerable output growth has occurred since 2005.

Gas production began in 1999 from the Panthere field and further small associated and non-associated gas fields should lead to maintenance of plateau gas production until 2013 when significant volumes of deep water gas may be developed.

Cote d’Ivoire has no onshore oil or gas production and none is forecast.



Cote d’Ivoire oil consumption had declined before 2004 due to political unrest in the country and it will now probably remain relatively flat, with slight upwards pressures. In 2005 the country became a net exporter of oil as new production was realised offshore, giving additional revenue for economic growth.

Gas consumption has increased and will continue to increase as supply is developed, to be used in new internal markets.



This is a simple forecast - detailed forecasts including offshore and onshore, deep water splits, sedimentary basins and major fields and drilling etc. can be purchased for most countries.
