Among these, the top fields in terms of capex for the period are Zabazaba-Etan with $11.1bn, Bonga North with $8.4bn and Bonga Southwest/Aparo with $3.9bn.”

Deepwater Golfinho-Atum Complex, two ultra-deepwater fields Mamba Complex and Coral South are the top three fields with capex for the eight-year period of $17.1bn, $15.0bn and $6.8bn respectively. All three are conventional gas developments.

Upcoming ultra-deepwater projects in Africa will have the highest total capex at $212.1bn. Deepwater projects will require $80.9bn over the lifetime, while onshore and shallow water projects carry a total capex of $63.0bn and $26.8bn, respectively.
