But previous export projects have struggled to stimulate growth for gas demand on the continent. This paper will explore how the industry can change that this time round. We will look at how governments and upstream oil companies, can work together to facilitate a positive environment for gas intensive industries such as fertiliser, chemicals, and gas to liquids to invest in the country.
