Boom to bust – the familiar cycle for the commodity business of oil and gas – is still rearing its head. How low will prices go? How long will the price decline last? These are the burning questions of the day. But industry experts know that to provide products for the future, the planning and investment must continue today. Oil and gas companies must control costs. They will continue to weigh the risks versus benefits of new projects, new products and how much capital to invest. Behind such decisions, there are regulatory, safety and environmental considerations. Balancing the need to supply the world with hydrocarbons, companies are considering investments in alternative energy sources. Technology is driving potential breakthroughs in both hydrocarbons and new energy sources in Africa. Unconventional hydrocarbons, such as shale oil and gas, bitumen and coal bed methane could expand the supply of oil and gas.
At PwC, our oil and gas professionals understand the challenges that you face, along with the uncertainties and risks that you have to manage, and we provide the help that companies need to succeed throughout the business cycle. We are the world’s leading advisor to the energy industry. We excel in serving oil and gas companies because of our skills, experience and teams of industry specialists. We have operated in Africa for more than 100 years and our footprint includes 66 offices in 36 countries in Africa, with over 9 000 staff members. We continue to help energy companies succeed.
Uncertainty is running high at the start of the new decade. How will the energy supply and stability be impacted given changes in key energy producing locations? Companies have new standards to follow and tighter regulations are under discussion.
