Burundi

Regions

Land-locked Burundi consists largely of metamorphosed sandstones and shales of the Burundian Supergroup of Proterozoic age with inliers of basement rocks of Archaean age.

The Western Rift around and northwards of Bujumbura, on trend with the Ugandan Albertine Rift, is partly filled by Cenozoic sediments. Alluvium and lake sediments of Quaternary age outcrop along rivers. Lake Tanganyika, on its western border, occupies the floor of the rift.

Although oil fields have been discovered within the Albertine Rift in Uganda to the north no petroleum potential has been identified in Burundi. Globalshift considers Its geology is probably unsuitable for the accumulation and preservation of commercial oil or gas fields.
