Rwanda

Regions

Land-locked Rwanda lies on the East African Albertine Rift. Most of the country is underlain by metamorphosed quartzites, sandstones and shales of the Burundian Supergroup which are locally intruded by granite. In the northwest and southwest Neogene volcanics have extruded into the rift.

Alluvium and lake sediments of Quaternary age outcrop in parts of the rift and along rivers and lakes. Lake Kivu, 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 Rwanda. Globalshift currently believes that there is insufficient evidence for a geology that could be suitable for the accumulation and preservation of commercial oil or gas fields.
