The republic of Congo

The Republic of the Congo – boasting over 1.8 billion barrels of proven oil reserves – is a key player in Africa’s oil and gas sector and aims to double hydrocarbon production to 500,000 barrels per day; in February 2024, it became a liquefied natural gas exporter with its inaugural shipment from the Congo LNG project, which monetizes gas from the Marine XII concession.
