Nine LNG liquefaction terminals are located in the Republic of Algeria, Libya (also known as the Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya), the Arab Republic of Egypt, the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, and the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Considering the fact that countries such as Nigeria possess some of the largest proven natural gas reserves in the world, it is not surprising that 18 additional LNG liquefaction terminal projects are proposed or under construction in this region. Some of the countries considering these projects include the Republic of Angola, the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, the Kingdom of Morocco, the Republic of Namibia, and the Islamic Republic of Mauritania.

There are no existing LNG regasification marine terminals on the African continent, although four are proposed, one in the Republic of Kenya, one in the Republic of South Africa and two in the Canary Islands (Islas Canarias), an island territory of Spain.
