Côte d’Ivoire: Electricity and gas supply and demand analysis

Challenge: An Africa-focused potential investor required a detailed picture of the gas and power markets in Côte d’Ivoire to assist with informing their investment decision for a gas-to-power project.

Solution: We produced a market intelligence report which examined the gas sector – notably including an analysis of production and reserves, future exploration and production, an analysis of gas demand and the potentials and pricing of LNG and other imports. This was followed by a detailed analysis of the electricity sector, covering policy direction and regulatory outlook, market structure, key players, details of existing and planned generation projects and an overview of the grid. The estimation of wholesale electricity tariffs for future projects along with scenarios for LNG imports allowed us to provide the client with a number of fully qualified medium-term electricity demand and supply outlook scenarios.
