Reuters

CAPE TOWN, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell's Leopard Marin discovery offshore Gabon may be a new commercial gas field, a senior company executive said on Thursday.

"Leopard is the first potentially commercial multi-Tcf (trillion cubic feet) find in a new gas play and I think that is very exciting for us and for the government of Gabon," Alastair Milne, Shell's vice president exploration for Sub-Saharan Africa, told an industry conference in Cape Town.
