Despite the bleak landscape, the African continent still offers significant opportunities in the oil & gas sector. “It is an opportune time for local governments that want to attract oil & gas investors to reform their regulatory, fiscal and licensing systems,” says Chris Bredenhann, PwC Africa Oil & Gas Advisory Leader (PwC.com).

With the economies of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) impacted by the unrelenting low oil prices and persisting regional instability, their insurance markets are likely to face repercussions. Such, in fact, is the severity of the decline in the market price of crude that the price per barrel in January 2016 stood at approximately a quarter of its market value two years ago, and at the lowest point since 2003. Moreover, despite the substantial fall in the price of oil, there are further potential headwinds that can place greater pressure on the sector, including reduced levels of demand from emerging economies such as China, increased shale oil extraction mainly from the United States, and the prospect of Iran re-entering the market as a major supplier following the removal of certain oil-related sanctions.
