Investing in Congo through oil, gas and related infrastructure

CIEHC-3The Republic of Congo’s Ministry of Hydrocarbons recently adopted a new Hydrocarbons code intending to increase investment in the country’s oil and gas industry through renewed activities of exploration and production. This new hydrocarbon bill, passed in August last year, aims to create sincere transparency throughout the industry, from the government sectors to participating contractors and developers seeking to invest.
Thirteen blocks are on offer in the Congo Licensing Round 2016, eight in the offshore Coastal Basin and five in the onshore Cuvette Basin. Interested companies are able to register for the round via www.congolr2016.com.

Democratic Republic of Congo: Government Announce New National Park

In about a decade now, the Democratic Republic of Congo has lost most of its forest cover, amounting to an area of about 31,000 square miles. As described by the Global Forest Watch, Congo has lost a forest area which is equivalent to the size of the country, Austria. Surprising, as it might seem, this act against nature occurred within just a period of one and half decade.  Now you can imagine the rate of wildlife loss that would result from such tremendous habitat loss and fragmentation.
