Abstract:East Africa is being hailed as the last unexplored oilfield. Estimates suggest that Somalia's offshore oil and gas fields could contain 110 billion barrels. Optimism over the extent of deposits is not universal, though. In addition, major political, security and environmental issues persist. There are fears that oil, conflicts over its revenues, and the insecurity and instability that exploitation could bring, will exacerbate an already complex situation. The present briefing addresses these issues, also examining similar situations in Mozambique and Timor-Leste. Bibliogr., notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
