More hydrocarbons have been discovered in East Africa in the past few 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.

Opportunities exist for UK companies to get involved at this very early stage and develop these openings with the chance to influence host Governments and support regulatory and master plan development. These include: supply of high efficiency gas turbines, parts and service; construction of gas/oil distribution networks; supply and installation of oil/gas/electricity transmission equipment; engineering works and supply of chemicals.

The Department for International Trade are working jointly with DFID to meet HMG’s objectives of prosperity, growth and poverty reduction. The HVO includes a strong education and capacity building strand as well as helping shape policies on local content. We are mapping the needs of EPCm contractors in the region against UK capability; building key commercial and political relationships in the region.
