Chad To Double Oil Production by End Of 2015 - CPAfrica. The Republic of Chad (Chad) expects to double its oil production by the end of 2015. This was made known by Chad’s Finance Minister, Kordje Bedoumra. The proposed increased is hinged on the fact that new oil fields are expected to come on stream. To effectively reach this goal, the country has appointed firms to inventory potential mineral deposits in an effort to diversify the economy. Chad has seen strong growth over the past decade as it has become an oil producer, although GDP growth slowed to 3.5 percent in 2013 due primarily to lower income from ageing wells in its Doba oilfield. Speaking to Reuters, Bedoumra, made known that the country expected a bounce back in the growth rate this year to 11-13 percent and double digits again in 2015 as oil production ramps up. “We are more or less at around 100,000 barrels per day (bpd),” he said in an interview at an OECD forum on Africa.

ERHC Energy Chad, a subsidiary of ERHC Energy Inc., announced that preliminary findings from an airborne gravity/magnetic survey of BDS 2008 in Southern Chad confirm the viability of leads in two focus areas identified by ERHC's technical team after careful analysis of previously collected data. ERHC's sub-contractor, Bridgeporth Ltd., a specialist geosciences company, has completed the survey that began earlier in October. The aerial survey, flown over 4720 line km, evaluated the hydrocarbon potential within ERHC's Block BDS 2008 in the area north of Esso's Tega and Maku discoveries in the Doseo basin and a second area situated east of and on trend with OPIC's Benoy-1 margin discovery in the Doba basin.

Bridgeporth used a three-sensor aircraft equipped with a GT-2A airborne gravity system for gravity recording and a G-822 Mobile Cesium Magnetometer for aeromagnetic recording. The aircraft was flown at an altitude of 150 m. Adapted from press release by Katie Woodward. Chad to double oil output by 2016, develop minerals – Minister. Chad expects to double oil production by the end of 2015 as new fields come on stream and has appointed firms to inventory potential mineral deposits in an effort to diversify the economy, its finance minister said.

The former French colony, one of the poorest nations in the world, has been rocked by humanitarian crises over the past decade including conflicts in the east and south, drought in the arid Sahel region and flooding. That has been compounded since 2012 by instability on its borders with Libya, Nigeria and Central African Republic, forcing Chad to increase its security budget to handle thousands of new refugees and counter a growing cross-border threat. The landlocked central African country has, nevertheless, seen strong growth over the past decade as it has become an oil producer, although GDP growth slowed to 3.5% in 2013 due primarily to lower income from ageing wells in its Doba oilfield.

Cette déclaration du Président de la République, IDRISS DEBY ITNO, le 9 Juin 2013, à l'ouverture de la vanne pétrolière de Badila, dans le Logone oriental, est bien sous-tendue par les prospections déjà faites et celles en cours dans le Moyen Chari, la Tandjilé, le Salamat, etc. "Le Tchad est assis sur d'énorme richesse, dont le pétrole", a annoncé un géologue américain de la CONACO.
