BMI View: Coal-fired power is set to dominate Botswana's power sector as total power generation will
grow at an annual average of 38% over our 10-year forecast period. The majority of growth will occur
from 2019-2020 as new coal-fired capacity comes online while exist ..."
BMI View: Congo-Brazzaville's oil production and exports are expected to grow robustly until 2018 as the
new production gradually comes online from a number of new fields. Risks to our forecasts lie to the upside
as the lower price environment supports increased inter ..."
BMI View: Underperforming hydropower and gas feedstock irregularities will keep Ghana's power
generation subdued over our 10-year forecast period. An annual average growth rate of 2.2% is forecast,
driven mostly by new gas-fired capacity and the commissioning of the A ..."
BMI View: Mozambican power generation will remain subdued, owing to a lack of progress on planned
power plants throughout our 10-year forecast period. Gas and coal reserves provide opportunities for
growth in thermal power generation, while investments into grid infra ..."
BMI View: Namibia will remain a net-importer of electricity due to lack of new power projects coming
online. Political and pricing issues cause delays to gas-fired and hydroelectric power projects. We expect
this will lead to an increase in non-hydropower renewables i ..."
BMI View: Power capacity growth in Zimbabwe will remain muted over our 10-year forecast period. Some
increase is expected as the Hwange power plant receives more coal supply and the 300MW Kariba South
expansion is completed in 2019. Ongoing generation deficits will be ..."
BMI View: Angola's oil production is forecast to remain strong and unaffected by low oil prices, with
output rising up until 2018. Post-2018 oil production will fall off due to a steep decline in rates on mature
fields and no new projects forecast to counteract the de ..."
BMI View: Angola's power sector will double in total generation by 2018 as the Soyo combined cycle and
Laúca hydropower plants are commissioned. Hydropower will remain the dominant source of generation,
while thermal power investment will increase alongside an increas ..."
BMI View: Equatorial Guinea's oil output will see smaller decline rates over the coming years on the back
of several smaller projects. However, maturing fields and a lack of new significant discoveries will continue
to push the production volumes to the downside over ..."
BMI View: Progress on the formation of a unity government offers upside risk to oil production in South
Sudan. However, we expect the pace of progress to remain slow, with no significant gains in output before
2017. The longer-term outlook for both Sudan and South Sud ..."
