The Equatorial Guinea petroleum industry's rapid development

Significant expansion of the petroleum industry in Equatorial Guinea started in the 1990s after the discovery of the Alba gas condensate field in 1983, and the subsequent discovery of the Zafiro and Ceiba fields.

Rapid development continued throughout the 2000s with the discovery of the Okume field complex and the Aseng field, and the early 2010s with the Alen field. Vigorous exploration and rapid development resulted in daily production rising from less than 5,000 bbl/d in 1992 to a 2012 average that exceeded 410,000 bbl/d, declining to 114,000 bbl/d in 2021.

RPS, heavily involved in the petroleum sector in Equatorial Guinea during this time, was able to assist the Government of Equatorial Guinea and Ministry of Mines, Industry and Energy to develop the sector into the driving force behind the ongoing growth in Equatorial Guinea's GDP and the country's rapid development.
