The minister for Energy, January Makamba, noted before the President of Tanzania Samia Suluhu Hassan that Tanzania could be holding nearly 60 trillion cubic feet (TCF) of gas deposits.

This amount stands to transform the energy sector and put a dent in the economy as the nation becomes a competitive actor within the regional and global markets.

However, the minister revealed that the government of Tanzania is taking natural gas exploration to the next level.

Tanzania’s race for natural gas development is strategic and on point. The nation has been paying attention to several methods of maximizing the LNG potential.

LNG in Tanzania is faced with other competitions in the region. Egypt is the next potential powerhouse next door and a much more experienced producer.

In 2012, Tanzania and three Chinese companies agreed to construct a 542 km pipeline leading from Mtwara to the nation’s commercial capital, Dar es Salaam.
