Dar Es Salaam – As LPG Summit returns to Africa for the 6th time running, the Summit is once again going to be held in Dar Es Salaam. The conference and exhibition include a vibrant exhibition of 80 companies and a dynamic conference agenda focusing on the region over two days.

As LPG is proving itself to not only be a healthier and more environmentally friendly fuel, it is also now proving itself to be a cheaper and more economic fuel than charcoal at almost 5 times cheaper.

This two-day event is endorsed by Petroleum Bulk Procurement Agency (PBPA) and World LPG Association (WLPGA).

Key sponsors include Oryx Energies and Hexagon Ragasco.

Government officials from the Ministry of Energy and Environment have been invited.

Key themes that will be discussed:

— Innovative uses of LPG in Tanzania and East Africa

— Technology as a means to boost safety and access to LPG in Tanzania and East Africa

A special Cooking for Life workshop will be led  by Michael Kelly, Deputy Director of World LPG Association (WLPGA).

Cooking for Life is the association’s flagship initiative in terms of development. The goal is to convert 1 billion people from cooking with biomass to cooking with LPG by 2030.

“ I think it is timely for LPG Summit to go back to Dar Es Salaam to help promote the benefits of clean burning LPG for environmental  and health reasons. Communities, government, the global and local LPG industry working together to ensure viable economic growth is the key to growing the industry and promoting the benefits of using this exceptional fuel” said Michael Kelly.

The Summit seeks to proliferate the use of LPG at a time when it has become economically sensible for the majority of users who are still using traditional fuels to switch over to LPG. The benefits of using LPG has far reaching implications and has the potential to save the lives of millions and improve the quality of life of many millions more causing ripples that will benefit future generations like few other lifestyle changes can.

LPG Summit seeks to promote the use of fuel for cooking, heating and power generation. LPG is the fuel of choice in emerging markets and LPG Summit is the platform that will bring the people, the government and the businesses together as Africa enters a new phase of development like never before.

The 6th African LPG Summit will be held at the Mlimani City Conference Center on July 3-4, 2019 ( and about 80 international companies will participate in the summit.
