Report summary

Uganda’s crude oil will be exported via Tanzania following a decision taken at a presidential summit in mid-April. The route has a number of advantages for Uganda, but the outcome has wider implications for the future of onshore oil and gas development in East Africa. With a shared pipeline to the Kenya coast no longer an option, the partners in Kenya's South Lokichar development must now evaluate the economics of a standalone export solution. In this insight we examine the context and impact of the decision on the developments and key stakeholders in Uganda and Kenya.
