Capricorn and Shell to follow BP in deserting Mauritanian basin?
In the wake of the British major, the main oil operators in the Mauritanian basin are considering abandoning their exploration projects there.
In anticipation of the start of oil and gas production, scheduled respectively for 2023 and 2024, Senegal has embarked on a series of major works and reforms to take full advantage of this bonanza. These include expanding its refining capacities, converting its power plants to gas, and bringing its legal framework into line with current norms - complex undertakings, some of which could be subject to delays.
The British major was scheduled to award one of its largest logistics contracts for Grand Tortue in April but has now delayed it. Those in the running include the biggest names in logistics in Mauritania.
