  • Ethiopia has 3.89 billion tonnes of oil shale located in Tigrai

    Ethiopia has 3.89 billion tonnes of oil shale located in Tigray State, which borders Eritrea. However, there is currently a lack of interest in exploring the shale oil, possibly due to a previous dispute over the area which led to conflict between Ethiopia and Eritrea. This conflict continues.

     

    In addition to the region of Tigray, there is a smaller deposit of 100-120 million tonnes at the Delbi. Moyen coal development, southwest of Addis Ababa, although Ethiopia has plans to utilise this for manufacturing urea fertiliser (World Energy Council, 2007).

    3.89 tones of oil shale will produce roughly about one trillions barrels of oil. That is huge amount oil if it is extracted successfully not it only it will be satisfy the local market but, it will have some left for export earning much needed hard currency.

  • Ethiopia to start work on space launch vehicle, domestically made satellites

    The Ethiopian government announced on 3 January 2017 that it intends to build its own medium-sized space launch vehicle (SLV) and develop the capabilities to domestically build satellites.

    The Ethiopian Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) said that it will develop a medium-sized SLV that should have its maiden launch within the next three years, according to MOST spokesperson Wondwosen Andualem.

    “Efforts are ongoing to launch into space a medium sized rocket within the coming three years,” said Andualem.

    Andualem also pointed out that Ethiopian capacity and capability to build its own satellites is increasing, thanks in part to the partnerships forged by Ethiopia with foreign governments and companies. The Ethiopian government has already stated that it seeks to develop and build satellites for the purposes of national security, disaster management and response, and land management.

    The MOST spokesperson confirmed that the Ethiopian government intends to build both the proposed SLV and satellites locally with minimum reliance on foreign partners.

    In order to facilitate Ethiopian space efforts, the government has created a Space Science Council, as well as the Ethiopian Space Science and Technology Institute, both chaired by the Ethiopian Prime Minister, Hailemariam Desalegn.
