East Africa gas: Huge reserves, complex development challenges
As gas reserves mount up offshore Mozambique and Tanzania, so too do the political and infrastructural challenges of meeting oil companies' export ambitions and host governments' domestic development needs
Global-scale gas reserves have been discovered offshore Tanzania and Mozambique to date, with the prospect of much more to come. But development is likely to be a challenging process for international oil companies and host governments alike.
Energy-hungry Tanzania's draft gas policy prioritises domestic development over export, raising the prospect of tensions of the kind already seen over the development of Uganda's oil. Mozambique's gas volumes are on a scale that should be large enough to satisfy ambitions all round, but there are concerns over whether the hitherto aid-dependent government has the capacity to handle investment on that scale.
The East Africa Gas Report collects together the best articles and maps from African Energy, the industry's leading source of analysis.
The report looks at the investment opportunities and challenges ahead for international oil companies and host governments alike.
Exports and Local Needs
It analyses the global-scale gas reserves that have been discovered offshore Tanzania and Mozambique, examines energy-hungry Tanzania's draft gas policy, and considers the region's LNG potential.
The report features two full-page maps on Tanzania and Mozambique, drawn by African Energy's expert cartographer David Burles.
