Many countries with electricity shortages - such as Nigeria, Ghana, Mozambique, and Tanzania - have large gas reserves but face challenges developing gas for power.
The gas-to-power value chain can break down in many places and is rarely financially viable if the power sector is not. Successful development of domestic gas for domestic power requires careful attention to gas and electricity pricing. International companies and governments may be incentivized to take the more straightforward payout from exports, even where domestic gas use could add more value to the economy.
