Congo (Brazzaville) Country Analysis Brief - January 2013

Congo (Brazzaville) is the fifth-largest oil producer in Sub-Saharan Africa. A vast majority of oil exploration activities and production in Congo comes from offshore fields, which many also contain associated natural gas. New deepwater production that started in 2008 helped to temporarily reverse declining output. However, most of the country’s oil fields are maturing and any future boost to production depends on field development at deepwater areas and new discoveries. The Italian company Eni is also pursuing exploration and development of oil sands in the south of Congo.
