ERAS advised a National Oil Company on the opportunities for maximising the local value added and job creation from the development of a natural gas field not connected to the main grid. The study evaluated the local resource base and economy, identified new investment projects in downstream gas consuming activities, and ranked project development options in terms of net investment, job creation, expected value added in specific economic activity clusters and future economic growth. This was the third of a group of studies aimed at identifying new project investment that would contribute to the growth of small and medium sized companies (SMEs) in new activity clusters.
