Beginnings

Only 3 wells have so far been drilled in The Gambia. In 1960 two wells were drilled onshore near the coast by BP but both were dry. One well was drilled offshore in shallow waters in 1978 which was reported to have gas shows.

However, the offshore Casamance-Bissau sub-basin has been the focus of industry activity after new analysis of West Africa's petroleum potential in 2007 following the Jubilee discovery offshore Ghana, the discovery of oil and gas in the first deep water well drilled off Sierra Leone, and, in 2014, oil discoveries in an area adjacent to Gambia but in in Senegalese waters.

Offshore, The Gambia may thus be prospective for hydrocarbons but while deep waters remain undrilled no production of oil or gas is forecast by Globalshift.
