Market Overview

The market for oil and gas upstream in Chad is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 0.19% during the forecast period of 2020 – 2025. Factor such as increasing exploration is expected to increase the growth of the Chad oil and gas market during the forecast period. However, attacks on the supply chain by militants in the country are impeding growth in the entire oil and gas sector.

  • Oil is the most important export commodity in the country. The production of natural gas in the country is meager, and most of the export in the country is accounted for by the export of oil. The oil is expected to keep dominating the market in the forecast period.
  • Increased governmental and private push into investment in the sector may lead to an increase in the production of oil and create an opportunity for companies in the industry.
  • Decreasing oil production in the country is expected to restrain the market in the forecast period. Many oil fields in the country have reached maturity, and production is expected to gradually decline from these oil fields.

Key Market Trends

Oil to Dominate the Market

  • As of 2018, Chad held an estimated 1.5 thousand million barrels of proved crude oil reserves. All of the country's proved oil reserves are held onshore because Chad is a landlocked country.
  • Chad oil fields produce Doba type crude oil that has an average API of 25.3 with very low sulfur content. The quality of oil increases the demand for the oil as it does not require specific refinery to refine the oil.
  • In 2018, the country has negligible production of natural gas owing to small reserves of natural gas in the country.
  • Hence, oil is expected to dominate the market due to being present more in quantity than natural gas.

Decreasing Oil Production to Restraint the Market

  • As of 2019, Chad's largest oil fields are mature. Field expansions and recovery techniques have kept the country's old fields at a steady rate of production; however, without additional upstream investment, decline rates are likely to grow, resulting in lower production.
  • Glencore, a large upstream corporation in the country, lost its license for exploration in the country. The government and the corporation could not finalize a deal for a new license. As the finances of the corporation have reduced it seems even less likely that a deal would be finalized in the forecast period.
  • There has been a decrease in oil production by 1.85%, decreasing to 5.3 million tons of oil equivalent (Mtoe) in 2018 from 5.4 Mtoe in 2017. The decrease in production is due to oil fields getting matured.
  • The Chad oil and gas upstream industry is expected to remain stagnant in the forecast period due to a decrease in oil production in the region.
