Steer Clear of the Multitude of Legal Pitfalls in Africa’s Oil & Gas Sector

This Summit comes at an exciting time for Africa’s oil and gas industry as it continues its stride to become a global oil and gas powerhouse. Backed by recent massive discoveries in various parts of the region along with increasing pressures from both government and commercial entities, regulations are expected to get more sophisticated.

In order to mitigate the risks and address the opportunities brought by large scale exploration and production activities, various countries such as South Africa, Tanzania and Mozambique are planning and implementing changes to their oil and gas regulations.
