Rwanda, a landlocked country in Central Africa, has faced governmental strife since the 1990’s. The country primarily relies on hydroelectric power and methane gas obtained at its borders. Currently, upstream oil industry is nonexistent, and downstream oil industry is based on foreign imports. The bulk of imported refined petroleum products are purchased from Kenya or Tanzania. The supply of these petroleum products can be unpredictable, however. Traditional fuels such as gasoline and diesel fulfill ninety percent (90%) of the country’s energy needs.
