Fes Launched Tanzania Oil and Gas Almanac

Dubbed the Tanzania Oil and Gas Almanac, the database will be available in hard copy and on the internet in both Kiswahili and English languages. Speaking at the launch of the portal yesterday, retired Controller and Auditor General (CAG), Mr Ludovick Utouh, was hopeful that the almanac will enhance transparency in the nascent industry.

“The challenge is however to spread the information to people in rural areas who can hardly access the internet,” Mr Utouh noted. The almanac, according to FES Resident Director in Tanzania, Mr Rolf Paasch, will assist the country to promote transparency and accountability in the oil and gas sector.

“It has been created to significantly increase the stock of information available in local contexts among extractive stakeholders including civil society organizations, government, the media and international oil companies,” he explained.

Adding: “Information included in the database has been drawn from publicly available sources. It was created using Media Wiki software, meaning that there will be online database of all updated articles.”

The Chief Editor of the almanac, Mr Abdallah Katunzi, said the portal will provide timely information for the general public, researchers, policy makers and the media, among other stakeholders.

“There are about 16 countries in the world with such a database; lack of information on extractive industry is among challenges the country has been facing,” Mr Katunzi who is a lecturer at the University of Dar es Salaam, noted.

According to Katunzi, study conducted by research organization Twaweza found out that 77 per cent of Tanzanians are not aware of discoveries of natural gas and thus the need for heightened awareness.

“In the study it was found out as well that three out of four Tanzanians had no idea of the existing natural gas policies. The almanac will provide information on all issues to do with the industry,” he explained.

At the same occasion, the Executive Director of Twaweza, Mr Aidan Eyakuze, urged operators of the portal to provide information that can be easily interpreted by users.

“It will play a crucial role for people to obtain information but I urge those operating to ensure they post useful and high quality data,” Mr Eyakuze stressed.

Tanzania has so far discovered more than 55 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of natural gas and exploration is still underway in both offshore and onshore. With the reserve at hand, the country readies itself to join the gas economy.

  26. Involving me and my partner we have owned more MP3 avid gamers earlier mentioned the decades than I can depend, like Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, and many others. But, the last couple of decades I’ve fixed down to one particular line of gamers. Why? Given that I was happy towards investigate how well-designed and enjoyment in the direction of use the underappreciated (and broadly mocked) Zunes are.

  27. The refreshing Zune browser is astonishingly beneficial, still not as very good as the iPod’s. It is effective effectively, still is just not as fast as Safari, and incorporates a clunkier interface. If oneself occasionally software on making use of the web browser that is not an issue, nonetheless if you are creating toward read through the world wide web alot against your PMP then the iPod’s much larger display screen and better browser could possibly be sizeable.

  28. Involving me and my spouse we have owned additional MP3 avid gamers over the several years than I can rely, such as Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, and so forth.

The iPod is a a great deal superior choice in just that scenario.

  31.

It is really incredibly colorful and gorgeous OLED screen is a bit more compact than the contact screen, yet the participant by itself feels rather a bit smaller sized and lighter. It weighs pertaining to 2/3 as considerably, and is appreciably smaller inside width and height, When becoming only a hair thicker.

  32. The Zune concentrates upon currently being a Transportable Media Player. Not a internet browser. Not a game machine. Maybe inside of the foreseeable future it’s going to do even greater in those areas, nevertheless for by now it can be a fantastic path towards prepare and hear toward your audio and motion pictures, and is without the need of peer in just that respect. The iPod’s positive aspects are its internet checking out and purposes. If those reliable more persuasive, quite possibly it is your excellent final decision.
