aboundance of natural gas reserves in Tanzania attracts many investors , contractors,
equipment suppliers and consultant firms
to offer business opportunities in
Tanzania. This implies that, natural gas will continue to play an increasingly important role in
meeting demand for energy in Tanzania.
There are many reasons for the long term
expected increase in demand for natural
gas in Tanzania, which include the following.
in the number of New homes
homes increase day after day, family size increase as well, as these new homes built,

demand for natural gas. Natural gas cooling, combined heat and power, and
distributed generation are expected to make inroads into those applications that
have traditionally been served solely by electricity.
gas use in transportation are almost negligible.Although natural gas powered
