Lessons from Chad: Drilling is a no brainer

Chad's rigs count has been surprisingly high for a year now, in a country that produces only about 100,000 bopd. With seven rigs deployed on its territory since September 2018 according to Baker Hughes GE, Chad counts more rigs than most African petroleum provinces. It is more than Angola, sub-Saharan Africa's second largest producer of oil. It is almost more than Congo, sub-Saharan Africa's third largest producer. The list continues: it is more than Gabon, Cameroon, or even Equatorial Guinea.
