In addition, it also appears that the national oil companies (NOCs) such as Midland Oil Company (Midland Oil), South Oil Company (SOC) met some delays in developing the infrastructures required to export the oil and gas that should be produced by the international oil company (IOCs)  in respect with their TES agreement.

In this context, most of these IOCs put on hold their investments and started to renegotiate the remuneration fees of their TES contract.

At the end of 2013 most of these TES agreements has been revised giving the signal to trigger series of major oil and gas projects upstream and midstream.
