Africa Energy Series – Equatorial Guinea
Africa Energy Series is a documentary series that explores the energy industries of African countries and how they impact the greater economy and society at large. Produced by Africa Branding Corporation, the 30-minute programs provide a complete portrait of each country’s oil and gas sectors via the perspective of its government leaders and industry professionals. Each documentary brings the industry to a life through a combination of one-on-one interviews and stunning aerial footage of oil and gas facilities in operation.
The first documentary focuses on Equatorial Guinea, a country in West Africa with an important oil and gas legacy. Like many of its fellow petroleum exporters in Africa, Equatorial Guinea is working to reverse systemic declines in oil production by bringing online new discoveries and encouraging more exploration. Equatorial Guinea is also diversifying the energy industry through large-scale gas developments and petrochemical projects that capitalize on its abundant natural gas reserves. Before the end of the decade, Equatorial Guinea will become Africa’s first country to launch a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) terminal when it completes the Fortuna FLNG development. “Africa Energy Series – Equatorial Guinea” will air on CNBC Africa in September 2016.
