Many Oil and Gas companies have long recognised that the most attractive growth opportunities are to be found within the African region and East Africa has become one of the most exciting markets for international energy explorers. The sheer volume of Oil and Gas in the region has made it impossible for energy investors to ignore. Merger, acquisition and disposal activity in the African energy market continues to gather pace. Hence, Oil and Gas law issues have gained significant prominence in the last several years. Specifically, issues regarding leasing contracts and mineral leasing on state lands have been the subject of numerous legislative reforms.
