The changing politics of natural gas in Tanzania


Lower global oil and gas prices have affected the level of exploration activity in Tanzania, but it has not completely eroded the stronger bargaining position the government has enjoyed in recent years. Major gas finds in various geographical locations combined with a stronger domestic demand means that the petroleum sector in the East African country will continue developing, albeit at a slower pace.

This paper reviews how the Tanzanian politics of oil and gas contract negotiations is changing. By focusing on the broader framework of contracts – including infrastructure, power production, and industrial use – the paper suggests that the focus on revenue maximation that prevails in much literature may skew our understanding of inherently political negotiation processes. Other priorities – and increasingly other actors – affect the price the government can get for its petroleum resources.

The paper by Rasmus Hundsbæk Pedersen, postdoc at DIIS, and Peter Bofin, consultant based in Dar es Salaam, is the second on the negotiation of petroleum contracts in sub-Saharan Africa. The first paper, The Politics of Oil/Gas Contract Negotiations in sub-Saharan Africa, reviewed the general literature on contract negotiations on the continent.
