Dar es Salaam — Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) will start an advanced search for oil in Lake Tanganyika, the state-owned firm said at the weekend.

From its first stages of surveys across Lake Tanganyika waters, TPDC believes the area from Kigoma Rural, Kigoma Ujiji, Uvinza and Mpanda Rural contains abundant oil resources.

The belief stems from the fact that neighbouring Uganda has already discovered oil in Lake Albert which has the same environment as that of Lake Tanganyika.

TPDC said in a statement at the weekend that it is deploying a non-invasive Airborne Gravity Gradiometry Survey (AGGS) over Lake Tanganyika North Block in the five districts between November, 2015 (this month) and January, 2016.

“The objective of the survey is to acquire high resolution gravity and magnetic data to map subsurface structural geological framework, thickness and extent of the sedimentary rocks over Lake Tanganyika rift basin,” the TPDC managing director, Dr James Mataragio, said in a statement at the weekend.

Gravity gradiometry refers to a study and measurement of variations in the acceleration due to gravity. Gravity gradiometry is used by oil and mineral prospectors to measure the density of the subsurface effectively and the rate of change of rock properties.

From this information it is possible to build a picture of subsurface anomalies which can then be used to more accurately target oil, gas and mineral deposits.

According to Dr Mataragio it is expected that the AGGS data will assist in planning for another survey that will finally identify potential areas associated with hydrocarbon deposition and subsequently identifying drilling targets.

TPDC is funding the entire project using its own development funds.

The survey campaign will be conducted using a low-flying special aircraft which will be flying between the altitude 80 and 100m above the ground at a speed of 220 kms/hour.

The survey will be flown during the day light time. “We would like to apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused by the presence of the aircraft around survey areas,” he said

  24. Palms down, Apple’s application shop wins by way of a mile. It’s a enormous quantity of all kinds of applications vs a rather unsatisfied conclusion of a handful for Zune. Microsoft is made up of programs, especially in just the realm of online games, still I’m not indeed I might want in direction of wager upon the potential if this aspect is substantial to oneself. The iPod is a substantially superior conclusion within that circumstance.

  25. Zune and iPod: Maximum individuals review the Zune in the direction of the Touch, nonetheless when looking at how slim and amazingly minimal and gentle it is, I consider it towards be a alternatively exceptional hybrid that combines features of both of those the Touch and the Nano. It’s extremely colorful and attractive OLED show is a little more compact than the touch screen, but the participant by itself feels rather a bit smaller sized and lighter. It weighs more than 2/3 as a lot, and is noticeably scaled-down inside of width and top, When currently being exactly a hair thicker.

  29. I’ll tools this critique toward 2 products of human beings: present Zune home owners who are thinking of an upgrade, and people striving in the direction of decide in between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other gamers truly worth thinking about out there, which include the Sony Walkman X, nevertheless I anticipate this presents oneself adequate info in direction of generate an conscious selection of the Zune vs gamers other than the iPod line as nicely.)

  30. If you happen to be nonetheless on the fence: seize your preferred earphones, head down to a Simplest Get and check with toward plug them into a Zune then an iPod and check out which a single seems superior in the direction of on your own, and which interface will make on your own smile excess. Then you can expect to recognize which is straight for on your own.

  31. Sorry for the significant evaluate, yet I’m genuinely loving the fresh Zune, and assume this, as very well as the very good assessments some other Those include published, will aid on your own choose if it’s the instantly determination for you.
