Browsing: LNG in Tanzania

Earlies this month, the government of Tanzania demonstrated how serious the nation is with a big deal sealed in the nation’s capital, Dodoma, on Saturday (11 June).

The Government of Tanzania and its partners, including global industry giants Equinor, Shell and ExxonMobil, have set the bar so high with a historic Host Government Agreement (HGA), which will realize ambitious gas and Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) mega project.

The $30 billion natural gas project aims to produce 10 million tons per annum of LNG for export with transformational potential for industrialization by bringing investment, technology, skills and infrastructure to the country, which will benefit Tanzanian businesses and its citizens.

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.
