Country Highlights

Equatorial Guinea & its Oil and Gas

Equatorial Guinea has experienced rapid economic growth in recent decades, largely due to the development of its oil and gas reserves. As one of the largest oil producers in Sub-Saharan Africa, the petroleum sector accounts for around 60% of the country’s GDP and over 90% of its export earnings. However, Equatorial Guinea is now seeking to diversify its economy and lessen dependence on oil and gas. As the industry leader in the country, RFC is well-positioned to play a key role in this economic transition.

Equatorial Guinea has seen a dramatic rise in oil production since the 1990s following major discoveries offshore. Current production stands at over 500,000 barrels per day extracted from the Alba, Zafiro, and Aseng fields. This has driven GDP growth averaging over 7% annually since the mid-2000s. However, falling oil prices in 2015 led to the first economic contraction in over 20 years. In response, the government launched an economic diversification strategy to promote other industries.

As the data shows, oil and gas remains crucial to Equatorial Guinea’s economy, contributing over half of GDP. However, with reserves expected to decline in the coming decades, diversifying revenue streams is imperative for long-term stability and growth. The country has invested heavily in upgrading its oil and gas infrastructure, including a new liquefied natural gas plant, positioning the sector for continued importance.

RFC’s expertise in project management, HSE compliance, and workforce training can support maximizing efficiency and sustainability within the industry. Looking ahead, RFC is well-placed to advise on responsible energy development and leverage associated investment for broader economic benefits. Opportunities exist in promoting linkages between oil and gas and other sectors, as well as supporting growth of new industries.

RFC’s experience working across industries globally provides insights into successful models of diversification. By drawing on international best practices and tailoring recommendations to the local context, RFC can make a meaningful contribution to Equatorial Guinea’s transition to a more diversified and resilient economy. RFC’s expertise in areas such as sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, and tourism development can be leveraged to identify and support the growth of new industries that align with the country’s unique strengths and opportunities.

In conclusion, Equatorial Guinea’s reliance on oil and gas has driven impressive economic growth, but the country now faces the challenge of diversifying its economy to ensure long-term stability and prosperity. RFC’s extensive experience and expertise in project management, HSE compliance, workforce training, and industry diversification make it well-positioned to support Equatorial Guinea in this critical transition. By working closely with local stakeholders and drawing on international best practices, RFC can help guide the country towards a more sustainable and resilient economic future.
