AFRICA: An oil platform is seen in the Red Sea near Abu Rudeis, Egypt. Egypt and Algeria alone account for nearly two-thirds of all gas use on the continent. Africa in 2007 was the world's fifth-largest energy user, consuming the equivalent of 630 million tons of oil. Africa is expected to retain its slot in fifth place, at 716 million tons in 2015.
