Economic Impact Assessment for Exxon
Chad, Middle Africa,
The project involved the calculation of Output and Income multiplier effects of the large (US$1.5 billion) oil investment by EXXON in Chad. OPM staff and consultants carried out calculations of the direct effects of both the Construction and Operational phases of the project. These were used as inputs into a variety of multiplier effect calculations to assess the further production and income effects of the project. Narrative discussion was also provided on the further macro-economic and structural effects the project is likely to cause beyond those amenable to formal quantification.
