ERITREA: An Enigmatic Exploration Venue

Eritrea’s natural resources—especially oil and gas—remain virtually untapped largely as a result of the 30-year war for independence with Ethiopia. While there is plenty of evidence that Eritrea holds massive oil and gas reserves, the country’s leader has kept quiet about it until recently. 

Eritrea is at the southern end of the Red Sea and this is one of the few unexplored places left in the world. It has the geological features of a major hydrocarbon bonanza.
