Experts in East Africa

23rd February 2016

East Africa is an area where GCA has considerable experience and has recently been very active.  

The petroleum systems of onshore and offshore East Africa are very different.  Recent onshore exploration successes, exemplified by those in the Albert Basin of Uganda, are oil discoveries in Tertiary aged sediments and are associated with the East Africa Rift system.  The offshore deepwater gas discoveries of Mozambique and Tanzania are typified by sandstone reservoirs deposited in a deepwater fold and thrust belt. A third petroleum system is much older and is exemplified by Mesozoic aged sediments seen on the island of Madagascar, as well as the petroleum system of South Sudan and its potential extension into Kenya, Ethiopia and adjacent areas.
