TANZANIA

(in East Africa)

CAPITAL: DAR ES SALAAM

POPULATION: 38 mm

AREA (on): 945,100 km2

OIL PEAK: na

SUPPLY

Gas production began in 2004 from the Songo Songo field, which lies partly on and partly offshore. The area is a regional high and there are few further prospects for adding gas output except in adjacent structures, especially offshore. These will maintain output at least to 2018

Tanzania began producing minor NGLs with its gas in 2004 but has not achieved any oil production. It may have some prospects in deep waters but no oil production is forecast.

 

DEMAND

Oil consumption in Tanzania has been flat since 2006 and is expected to remain so. The commencement of gas production in 2004 has led to a big increase in gas consumption for electricity generation, allowing the country to divert oil into the transport sector.

All oil is imported and there is, as yet, insufficient gas to develop an export market.
