The challenges facing the African crude oil, refined product markets

Andrew Bonnington, editorial director for European and African oil and Eklavya Gupte, associate editor covering the West African crude oil markets, discuss the unique challenges and opportunities facing the African continent. Booming US crude oil production has meant that Nigeria in particular has had to find new homes for its crude oil exports while Algerian and Angolan crude oil exports have also been impacted.

The African continent is also increasingly reliant on importing refined products to meet the needs of a rapidly growing population. However, investment in African refining is on the immediate horizon, but the challenges that new investment faces are discussed in some detail.

This is the latest in a series of weekly podcasts aimed at highlighting significant news stories from around the energy world. Check back every week for the latest update.
