  • Regional Report: Middle East-North Africa

    Caron Howard and James McCormack

    The vast oil and gas reserves of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region have historically played a dominant role in the global economy, and today the region continues to be a primary exporter of oil and gas all over the world. The political turmoil of the past year has brought uncertain times to the region and fresh challenges to the oil and gas industry. Despite this, the MENA region has seen continued high levels of upstream activity, rewarded with discoveries being made and new fields coming onstream. Even with the emergence of new significant hydrocarbon plays in Brazil and Sub-Saharan Africa, the MENA region will continue playing a key role in world energy.
