Located in western Uganda, the Albert–Edward Rift basin is the first East African Rift system to have provided significant onshore oil finds and has spurred exploration in similar nearby basins, notably in Kenya. The basin first attracted international attention in 2006 when the play-opening Kingfisher oil field was discovered. Since then, a total of 1.6 billion barrels of recoverable oil has been found, the majority of which is commercially viable to develop. Explorers continue to target Miocene and Pliocene oil plays. Development of existing and future discoveries depends on the construction of around 1,400 kilometres of export pipeline, across difficult terrain with poor existing infrastructure. The pipeline project, which will consist of a standalone pipeline through Tanzania to the port of Tanga, is expected to be commissioned in 2022. Explorers can expect to achieve healthy returns when production and export begins. Full details are available to download in excel and pdf format.
