Apart from infrastructure, the greatest obstacles in oil and   natural gas industry in Tanzania is scarcity of skilled labors at local level.

Although effort has been done to train local people inside and outside of the country, but the number of trained people  do  not meet the demand to serves the industry.

The shortage of locals people with knowledge and experience relevant  to oil and gas disciplines in  oil companies, consulting firms and tax authorities, will causes most of oil and gas projects in Tanzania to take longer than average. Also we will remain dependant from  foreign companies in terms of  technical expertise.

The local participation in the oil and natural gas sector in Tanzania is necessarily important as the key to succeed in this industry.

Having large number of skilled workers in the oil and natural gas sector will minimize cost that recently stay in the hands of foreigners and investors, as well as removing barriers in developing newly discovered gas resources.
