As energy transition pressures gathered momentum in the run-up to and following UN climate talks in Glasgow last year, African oil and gas producers have responded by railing against the West — dismissing calls to scale back development of fossil fuels as a death blow to export sectors that would also nip domestic economies in the bud. The message is much the same at COP27 this month in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. However, gas’ problems in sub-Saharan Africa predate the transition, and are unlikely to go away until producer governments reform domestic power sectors.
