The Deloitte Guide to Oil and Gas in East Africa

Until the last few years this region has been a sleepy backwater for the upstream industry, but the discovery of significant quantities of oil in Uganda in 2006 has ushered in a bonanza; indeed one senior oil company executive informed me recently (January 2013) that more hydrocarbons have been discovered in East Africa in the last 2 years than anywhere else in the World. Onshore oil discoveries in Uganda have been followed by discoveries in Kenya. Offshore we have seen world-class discoveries of gas in Tanzania and Mozambique.
