Impact of Offshore Oil and Gas on Kenya-Somalia Relations

The Institute for Security Studies posted on 1 March 2019 a commentary titled "Is the Scent of Oil a Solution for Somalia?" by Peter Fabricius.

Somalia is in a dispute with its southern neighbor, Kenya, over claims that Somalia tried to auction off oil and gas exploration blocks in territorial waters that Kenya claims. Somalia denied the allegations, saying that while the maps presented at the auction included territory that Kenya claims, this was just a marketing exercise.
