Play by Play: Lake Kivu


  • Lake Kivu's oil and gas potential is less conventional than other basins in the East Africa Rift System (EARS), and yet, it is the only one where the resources in place are already in production.
  • Estimated at 60 billion cubic meters of methane gas and 300 billion cubic meters of carbon dioxide accumulations, Lake Kivu is considered to be the lake with the biggest reserves of this resource in the world.
  • The gas concentration was first detected in the 1930s, but the first project to evaluate the commercial potential of the lake's methane resources was not until 1963, and the gas was not used for power generation until 2006, when the Kibuye Power 1 plant came online with a generation capacity of 5 MW.
