This presentation discusses the effects that the expectation of petroleum exploration has had on the small African Atlantic island state of São Tomé and Príncipe. It will focus, first, on the ways oil “potentiality” has been maintained and the forms of speculation and hopes this has created. Second, it will analyse how the country is being set up as an “exemplary” oil producer through a politics of anticipation, even before the start of commercial oil extraction.
