In collaboration with the King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center (KAPSARC) and the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM), the Center on Global Energy Policy organized a workshop to discuss the potential demand for natural gas in the Eastern African region based on the development of resources in Mozambique and Tanzania and, potentially, Kenya.
