Eastern African Energy Riches Attract Interest

Energy deposits located in east African nations and their offshore coastlines are increasingly drawing foreign investor interest.

Recent surveys have led analysts to estimate that Mozambique has over 6 trillion cubic feet of recoverable natural gas reserves while neighboring Tanzania’s natural gas reserves could exceed 7.5 trillion cubic feet.

Petroleum Development Consultants managing director David Aron noted, "The interesting question is whether there will be a (natural gas) liquefaction plant in both Tanzania and Mozambique or whether a single shared location could be developed," adding that Mozambique’s natural gas from its Pande and Temane onshore fields could be exported to neighboring South Africa while Tanzanian natural gas, produced from its offshore fields, would be used primarily for power generation, allowing it to reduce its imported energy costs, Nairobi’s The East African reported.

Both Tanzania and Mozambique are currently plagued by indigenous energy shortages, which lead to electrical blackouts.

Tanzania, East Africa’s second- biggest economy, before its natural gas fields begin production, is seeking to relieve its electricity shortages in the interim by promoting geothermal energy. Tanzanian Energy and Minerals Deputy Minister Adam Malima said, “We are moving toward more environmentally friendly sources of energy as our demand increases. We are looking to the private sector to see if there is interest in geothermal development.”
