MIDDLE EAST

 

Four areas are included in this region - North West Africa, West Africa, South East Africa and the Middle East. There are thirty seven countries in the region that produce or have produced oil, condensate, natural gas liquids and/or natural gas at recorded and measurable levels. Of these twenty three are in Africa and thirteen are in the Middle East, including Turkey and Israel with Palestine, counted as one.

 

Madagascar began producing oil in 2008. Two further countries in Africa (Uganda and São Tomé & Príncipe) have the potential to produce oil in the short term and gas in the longer term.

 

The region has nine OPEC members, six in the Middle East and three in Africa. These countries, combined with new oil output that is being progressively realised from deep waters off West Africa, are hugely important for meeting global oil and gas demand.
