Finding East African Oil&Gas

Learn more Date of Event
23 Feb 2017

At one time East Africa was considered a petroleum backwater and saw little or no exploration.

Now we have a huge gas province offshore Mozambique and Tanzania and a rift valley oil province in Uganda and Kenya.

So two regional questions arise immediately: 

1. Does the rift valley oil play extend further north, and southwards, perhaps as far as Zambia?

2. Did the source rock that generated all that offshore gas first deliver an oil play, one that we have not yet found and, if Yes, where is it? 

And if such potential opportunities and prospects exist, which companies are in the pole position to find them; or is a regional consoldiation required first? 

These are the themes we will address in our upcoming Forum; and we are looking for insightful presentations

Please contact me if you/your company would like to make a presentation 

And Richard Mcintyre if you are interested in the sponsorship/exhibiting opportunities we offer.

In fact it is very rare that this ...

North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean

They vary in scale but every country along the southern edge of the Mediterranean has an oil & gas industry – from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya, to Egypt, Israel, Lebanon (and Cyprus). And the maturity varies too, from rank exploration to gas development projects to mature oil production. ...
