Mali has a petro gas potential covering an area of 900 thousand square kilometers.

This Initiative is implemented in accordance with a standard called the “Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative Standard”.
The application of this standard requires extractive companies to publish a list of their beneficial owners, their degrees of participation, the procedures for exercising this participation or controlling said companies.
