South Africa is the most developed economy in sub-Saharan African and has a long history of excellence in many sectors such as mining and resource extraction and maritime services and fabrication. South African companies are also well-versed in the business of operating in the challenging African environment. In recent decades the initial development of South Africa's oil and gas resources and the rapid growth of upstream opportunities in West Africa has underpinned the extension of this established capability into the upstream markets and there is now a significant upstream supplier base in South Africa - SAOGA has about 170 member companies and we are aware of many more. Local supplier capacity is complemented by the presence of many of the world's leading service companies who supply both the domestic and regional upmarkets from South African bases.
