Global Energy Monitor

The Africa Gas Tracker provides a comprehensive dataset of gas infrastructure across Africa. The tracker covers gas pipelines, LNG terminals, gas-fired power plants, and gas extraction sites. The map and underlying data are updated every year, and each project has a dedicated wiki page on GEM.wiki that provides extensive detail on the project, such as the project’s status, capacity, and ownership.

The interactive map format allows users to geographically visualize various configurations of pipeline routes and infrastructure locations. The data for this tracker are drawn from the global datasets developed by the Global Gas Plant Tracker, Global Oil and Gas Extraction Tracker, and Global Gas Infrastructure Tracker.
