East Africa: Meeting to Focus On EA Gas, Oil Finds

Major gas discoveries in Tanzania and prospects for oil find will be among topics for discussion during the fourth East African Oil and Gas Summit slated for February 10 to 12 in Nairobi.

Also on agenda is the recent discover of over 100 metres of net oil play in northern Kenya by Tullow Oil and its partner Africa Oil Corp. The oil find at Etom-2 well near Lake Turkana has been viewed as the best quality discovery in the region to date.

The summit is being held on the heels of last year's one which attracted over 2,300 participants from 380 companies around the world which, according to its organisers, gained invaluable insight into the projects and latest opportunities in the region.
