Sub-Saharan Africa-Natural Gas Desk Study (DS) Series
Sub-Saharan AfricaOctober 22, 2020
The USTDA engaged K&M to evaluate gas-sector projects in Sub-Saharan Africa that may be good candidates to receive USTDA funding. K&M’s scope includes a preliminary assessment of up to twelve proposals or initial assessments of project planning activities (such as feasibility studies, technical assistance, legal advisory services, engineering and design, environmental impact assessments, and pilot projects) in the natural gas sector in Sub-Saharan Africa (including Nigeria, Botswana, South Africa, and Mozambique), and a detailed funding proposal of up to ten project planning activities for USTDA consideration. The assessments were based on the potential for export of U.S. services or goods, track records of the project developer or sponsors, project’s financial viability and bankability, development and environmental impact, impact on U.S. labor, and how well the project aligns with Power Africa’s initiative goals.
