Tanzania has one of the most promising oil and gas reserves in East Africa. There is a real sense in the country that the need for collaboration between major stakeholders is vital for the future of the oil and gas mega projects in Tanzania and the East African region.
With one of the largest gas reserves in East Africa and the potential of becoming a major gas exporter, Tanzania theoretically has enough gas to support up to 16 liquefied natural gas (LNG) trains. The country is now looking to gain traction in its ambition to become the first exporter of East African natural gas embedded in a vision of industrialisation and economic development for its population.
Tanzania is also moving forward with the strategic and important East Africa Crude Oil Pipeline Project (EACOP) that will come from Uganda and which will provide a number of opportunities for development along the oil value chain, not only in the construction but also all other aggregated sectors.
Therefore, the second edition of the Tanzania Oil & Gas Congress, taking place from 24-25 September 2018 at Hyatt Regency Hotel, The Kilimanjaro in Dar Es Salaam, is extremely timely. His Excellency Honourable Dr. Medard Kalemani, Minister of Energy of the United Republic of Tanzania, will outline the vision for Tanzania’s industrialisation powered by oil and gas, and highlight the investment opportunities the latest project developments will bring to the country.
Along with the Ministry of Energy, TPDC, PURA and EWURA, NEEC, and several other key Government and industry stakeholders have also announced their support and participation in the upcoming Congress, organised by the CWC Group in collaboration with Pietro Fiorentini Tanzania as local partner.
Joining the senior level speaker line up, Hon. Salama Aboud Talib, Minister of Lands, Water, Energy & Environment of Zanzibar, will share her views on the significant opportunities that oil and gas discoveries will bring to Tanzania to fast-track economic development and public welfare improvement. Eng. Kapuulya Musomba, Acting Managing Director of Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) will also speak about his company’s latest upstream projects and opportunities for investment in the planned expansion of the Mtwara-Dar es Salaam natural gas project (gas distribution) that will increase power supply to the nation.
In its initial year the event immediately established itself as the premier meeting point of the industry in Tanzania and East Africa. This year we will be bringing more experts from around Tanzania and the region to have fruitful discussions and learn about the latest project updates.
With a variety of issues facing the energy sector in Tanzania, the Tanzania Oil & Gas Congress is well placed to bring together existing industry players and international investors to discuss the following key topics:
- Gas and LNG Mega Projects: Latest updates and opportunities
- Project spotlight: East Africa Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) – the pipeline’s strategic importance to Tanzania and the region
- Panel discussion: creating a robust and investor friendly business environment in Tanzania
- Gas monetisation as a force to power industrialization and economic development
- Panel discussion: local content and job creation ensuring a sustainable development in Tanzania’s oil and gas projects
- Government and industry collaboration to move projects forward
- Technology showcase: how to ensure project efficiencies and competitiveness?
- Downstream projects and infrastructure development in Tanzania
The Congress will showcase the opportunities for investment and focus on the creation of partnerships between local and international companies by gathering together all the major Government and industry stakeholders.
The event will also be an exciting opportunity for local companies to meet and engage with potential partners for in-depth discussions about the development of the strategic oil and gas mega projects, the importance of capacity building and knowledge transfer, the opportunities for Tanzanian companies and workforce in the oil and gas value chain, and many other key topics.
For all those involved in the oil and gas industry in Tanzania and looking for business ventures, partnerships and business opportunities this will be the place to be, so we look forward to welcoming you on the 24 and 25 September in Dar es Salaam.
