Recent years has seen an explosion of interest in the highly prospective West African Transform Margin. However, an uptick in exploration offshore Gabon has yielded mixed results, and this quarter a three-well deepwater drilling campaign by Ophir ended dry. Gabon's new hydrocarbons law has also materially worsened both the country's fiscal and licensing terms, and introduced a high degree of regulatory uncertainty. Unless the law is amended, we see Gabon lose investment to other, more attractive West African countries.

The main trends and developments we highlight for Gabon's oil and gas sector are as follows:

* While we expect some near-term gains in oil production, the longer-term trend for Gabon's oil sector is one of decline, due to both natural depletion at maturing fields and limited new production coming on stream.
* Although Gabon's deepwater potential offers significant upside risk to our view, a string of disappointing drilling results may dampen interest in expensive exploration campaigns. In addition, the country's new hydrocarbons law has materially worsened fiscal and regulatory terms for international oil and gas companies. Given the abundance of opportunities in the West African upstream, we believe Gabon risks driving investors to other, more attractive frontier players.
