Also, with the exception of Sudan and South Sudan, there are no crude oil producers in the region, and only two countries held proved oil reserves as of January 1,
2013: Uganda (2.5 billion barrels) and Ethiopia (430 million barrels). East Africa holds 8 percent of the continent’s total crude oil refinery capacity, which is located in Sudan, Kenya, Zambia, Tanzania, and Eritrea. Mozambique and Tanzania are the only natural gas producers, with an output of 135 billion cubic feet (Bcf) and 30 Bcf of dry natural gas in 2011,respectively.
