Without NewsBase I could have three or four suppliers and still not have the same depth of coverage.

AfrOil provides the most incisive and comprehensive coverage of the African oil and gas sector. AfrOil doesn’t just tell me what’s happening now, it tells me where the next hot spots will be, which is crucial for planning ahead. AfrOil is essential to my work and I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in oil and gas in Africa.
