.. Amazing Stories On Oil and Gas


So many people think that the oil and gas sector is for the bigwigs only.

When they think about “oil and gas,” countries like The United States, The United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, etc. comes to mind.

When they think about “oil and gas,” the picture below comes to mind: long pipes lined parallel to each other, taking right-angle left and right turns, storage tanks littering a vast area of land, and drilling machines puffing red flame and black smoke into the sky.

When they think about “oil and gas,” they think you have to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars and have the right connection. I mean, we’re talking about world powers.

But that’s not all true.

The oil and gas sector is like any other sector. It has:

  • …its own market forces.
  • …high and low sub-sectors.
  • …related and supporting sectors.

For a long time, I’ve seen businessmen miss out huge deals and contracts in the oil and gas industry because of the lack of  useful information.


So, I decided to start sharing information about the oil and gas sector for our readers to act on the information and generate new business.

But this website is not for Tanzanians alone. The oil and gas sector is everywhere. Worldwide.

Who Am I?

Hello, my name is Hussein Boffu. I am the founder of Tanzania Petroleum.

I am an entrepreneur specializing in the oil-and-gas supply chain. For quite some time now, I’ve been consulting a lot of businesses, both local and international, regarding starting a business in Tanzania’s oil and gas sector.

I have been approaching and talking to executives, and have been selling goods and equipment to various oil-and-gas companies in Tanzania.

What Others Are Saying About Me

“Competitive rates and fast delivery of goods are the key factors keeping me happy to choose Hussein’s business. His prompt response serves us in emergency situations.” – Malisa Florenso, Procurement Manager, Maurel et Prom Exploration and Production Tanzania Limited.


“I have had the pleasure of working with Hussein Boffu for a while now with numerous oil and gas companies in Tanzania. He is very responsive and a go-getter with attention to details, and ultimately keeping the customer happy. Hussein will keep in touch with you from the moment you start working with him to when the project is completed and BEYOND.”  –Imran Pishori, Vice President, Quicksource, Inc., The United States.


“I have found Hussein to be a veritable fountain of information with a vast and useful network of senior contacts when I first sought information about the Tanzania’s oil and gas industry. Also, Hussein has a newsletter and website that is arguably one of the international community’s first stops when considering investment into Tanzania.” –Daniel R. Butler, Consultant and CEO of MelbourneSRO, The Czech Republic.


“It was pretty hard entering Tanzania’s oil and gas market. Thankfully, working in partnership with Hussein, purchasing orders from oil and gas companies in Tanzania are coming in.” –Jackson Obi, General Manager, Jack-Pull Oil and Gas Nigeria Limited.


“I was amazed when I first found his informative article on the internet. My reaction? Wow. It was the absolute best anyone could offer the petroleum industry. So, I emailed him for a face-to-face interview. And we met. Seriously, I have a strongly feeling about him. Hussein Boffu enlightens people who are passionate about doing business in the oil and gas sector in Tanzania.” –Mussa J. Mlindwa, Commercial Assistant, American Embassy, Tanzania.


“We frequently share our best practices and concentrate on expanding our combined knowledge base. And I believe, with his skills and knowledge, Tanzanians can benefit a lot from him.”  –Peter S. Hermes, Managing Director, Tanzania Mines, Gas and Oil Company Limited.


“I met Hussein recently on the internet and knew immediately that he was committed to create awareness in the booming oil and gas sector in Tanzania. I haven’t seen a passion for the oil and gas sector greater than Hussein’s. He knows his stuff.”  –Abraham Adekunle, writer from Lagos, Nigeria.
