AMINEX plc, a public limited company incorporated in Ireland, is close to the producing songosongo and new gas process and transportation by early April 2016.
The first gas production from the Kiliwani North gas project which is estimated to contain 28bn cubic feet of contingent gas resources is now expected in early April.
The state’s Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) had previously advised Aminex to prepare the KN-1 well for production by mid-February.
The processed gas will be transported to Dar es Salaam where it will be sold in the domestic market.
Jay Bhattacherjee, Aminex chief executive, said, “The successful conclusion of the well integrity tests and installation of the wellhead control panel finalizes the Company’s preparations prior to the commissioning of the new Songo Songo Island processing facilities.”
Following the signing of the gas sales agreement and the completion of the construction of pipeline and gas treatment infrastructure Aminex looks forward to the commencement of commissioning at Songo Songo.
