Overview: Sao Tome


São Tomé and Príncipe has established a joint authority with Nigeria to manage offshore oil exploration and development in the oil-rich Gulf of Guinea. Under the accord, Nigeria will receive 60 per cent of revenues and São Tomé and Príncipe 40 per cent. Preliminary indications suggest that there may be substantial commercial reserves of oil in the area. Production is expected to begin in 2016.
