    This year a lot has been said about the new role of the hydrocarbons of Africa. The mainstream discourse talks about an oil rush or an African oil scramble, which will unavoidably lead to a bipolar confrontation between China and the United States, for the control of the oils resources in the African subsoil continent. Thus, the purpose of this text is, in first place, to carry out a descriptive analysis that will help to test the hypothesis of this African oil scramble. Secondly, with the obtained results, the text will show the pros and the cons for this phenomenon leading to a Chinese- American confrontation. Finally, this speculation will lead us to conclude that there is enough evidence to argue that the African hydrocarbons game might take place in a scenario featured by the multilateralism.
