The oil and exploration company, Beach Petroleum (T) Limited of Australia, stated that although Lake Tanganyika shows signs of oil, the first oil well will not be drilled for at least 15 years. Lake area locals who are supposed to benefit from the lake’s mineral wealth, claim that oil extraction has already begun. Beach Petroleum insists that any drilling being done is for exploration and scientific studies only. For more on this story, visit allAfrica.com.
