Those getting a job in Oil and gas companies, multinational and other Tanzanian oil and gas companies are not necessarily better  or smarter than you’re. They are ordinary person like me and you. Now you can learn how they get good job and you’re not getting any.


In this article you will learn  how to get access to the secret technique how to get your dream job in the highly competitive Tanzania’s oil and gas market.


Dear Future Tanzanian oil and gas workers,

About 3 years ago when you tried to picture where you will be this year. What did you see?


You saw yourself working with reputable oil and gas companies earning huge salary and riding a nice car, Right? In other words you live the life you desire.

But today?  Mhmh…! The reality is different,  the reality does no agree with your dreams.

You still have not gotten the job you want- even after submitted many job applications.


You still have not implement big plans have in your life. And you’re  still not financially capable to play “big brother/sisters” to your youngers and relatives.

Your parents haven’t started enjoying the fruits of their hard work, and perhaps you still fall back on them for some financial assistance


Are you sick and tired of being asked “So what are you doing? Because your mouth have no answer like I’m still searching for”

And your hope of getting a job in oil and gas die day by day.You confusing the most with these increasing number of graduates and reducing jobs available

Here’s a the Reality.

Not being unemployed makes you feel bad.

You’re feeling bad because you think like you’ve no power or control over your life.

And it leads you to feel like a FAILURE as an ADULT.


If I ask, do you know why you haven’t gotten a job  in oil and gas yet?

I know your response will be:

  1. I do  not have any connection”
  2. “My GAP was quite Low”
  3. “I have low grade”
  4. “I think the course I have is unrelated to oil and gas industry”
  5. “I think I’ have bad lucky”

But here’s a the reasons

Your classmate are getting good job in these international oil and gas companies. And are promoted to higher position. Most of them are raised from ordinary family

With no connections. With poor grades.What’s make them so special? Is it kismet? No.

Now, let me tell you the truth

My friend, it’s not always about connections or your GPA

It’s about doing things right way.

The reason you’re not getting oil and gas jobs is because you’re not doing something right. And result you’re losing your chances to those who are doing right things.

You won’t get the oil and gas job if your using the same approach everybody use.especially with  huge competition out there.

You know what I mean?  Is the approach where you send out resumes/Cv’s to several oil companies and hoping hiring manager will call you back.


This approach will only drain your energy and get you more frastruated.

And Even if this approach works, it does not work for high paying job, it only work for ordinary jobs.

Fact about what people say at Mkuranga

Oil and Gas in their Area.


We will compare the History of Developing Countries from the time when they discovered Oil and Gas….


How the citizen was Involved until Now

we are the sponsor of Tomorrow

There lot of oil and gas business opportunities in Tanzania oil and gas industry, And the rate of this opportunities are increasing due to increasing demand of energy in Tanzania as well as flocking of foreign oil and gas company in the region.

One can approach sector in multiple ways, However, Interested people should think clearly, and decide kind Oil and gas business in order to accurate profit. Oil and gas business has to do with the market, So an investor should have better understanding market prior investing. This will help them to invest for better returns.

Even though Tanzania natural gas reserves were discovered in 1974, it was after thirty years later, in 2004, that production commenced.

This reveals a situation in which the government was excited to improve its petroleum resources, but was unable to do so due to a weak bargaining position.

Since 2010 several natural gases have been made, this indicates that Tanzania would be among the largest natural gas exporter for the future. According to an International energy of US, Tanzania has the potential to become a liquefied natural gas (LNG) exporter in the future.
However, the most important things to be done is to control public expectation on this natural gas resources. Studies of all oil and gas economies have shown that citizens expectations on natural gas are unrealistic.

Most Tanzanians especially those who live nearby the natural gas is found expect to become rich and are very optimistic that natural gas industry will create millions of jobs others think revenue generated from natural gas will stay in the hands of corrupt leaders and politicians which all of these is unrealistic

In order to avoid resources curse the country should manage expectation of its citizens. The most effective way to do so is what is called “Information sharing and public disclosure”

Information sharing and public disclosure means a country publishes all necessary information relating to Tanzania oil and natural gas industry like the scale and quality of natural gas reserves, exploration cost.

Also Read:Top-3-places-on-the-internet-where-every-Tanzanian-can-learn-about-oil-and-gas-sector-for-free

Those oil and natural gas agreement should be published. A government together with private sectors should set clear goals through consultations of its citizens and communities where the resources are found.
A country should publish what percentage of revenues generated from natural gas would go to the national budget, and what percentage will set aside for development purpose.

Unavailability of this information to the citizens will result to the mistrust between communities and government

Wonder if you know oil and gas industry has transformed the lifestyle of Tanzanians? Do you think oil and gas industry gives you more freedom?

You are about to learn excellent stuff

Despite the fact that Tanzania does not produce crude oil and the country has no recent crude oil discovery, Every Tanzanian are in contact with items that depend on crude oil on their making, like diesel, kerosene, and gasoline

According to recent statistics published by U.S energy information administration, Tanzania consumes some 35,000 barrels of refined oil product each day in 2013.And all of these were imported.
Top 5 items almost every Tanzanians throughout the country is in daily contact with including the following.

Gasoline is the fuel for cars, is the most important crude oil product used by many Tanzanians due to the presence of various filling stations in our countries.

We use gasoline in our car that help us to travel from one place to another.

2:Diesel fuel
Is fuel for car train bus and ship, everyone is in contact with diesel as we use those items for transport purpose to move from one region to another.
Is the fuel for planes and jets, kerosene has been helping us to travel hundred of miles in easy and efficient manner, it help us to visit friends family and do business.

Crude oil also used to make lubricants that enable us to reduce frictions into several machines and engines, Lubricants is applied on car engines, ship engines also it used for making cosmetics

Bitumen is another petroleum product, it is very viscous dark brown materials used in construction of high road


Final words
Items that are made from crude oil not only improve the lives of Tanzanians but also all over the world everyone uses crude oil products to run devices that allow to travel thousands of miles a day, also it drive  internet and global communication.

Crude oil controls the world and will continue to do so until another form of energy comes along that is cheap and easy to use.


Natural gas has so many uses and benefits to people. The sad reality is that most of us we think natural gas has nothing to do with us than producing electricity and cook food

This article examines applications of natural gas in our daily life.

let meet them

Food companies
Food companies use natural gas to dry several products like chips and potato
Industrial uses
Uses natural gas to generate steam for run various operation
Natural gas is used as raw materials to manufacture ammonia for agriculture fertilizer

Other natural products that depend natural gas on their making
Natural gas is comprised of chemical like ethane butane propane. So companies process ethane to make ethylene.

Ethylene is used to manufacture plastic know as polyethylene which used to make several products Likes Toys, Housewares

Propane and butane as components of natural gas  also used to manufacture chemical building block
Transportation fuel
Many people are not aware that natural gas vehicle is already in many parts of the world since it has less environmental pollution compared to oil powered vehicle.

Natural gas is used to manufacture paper, clay, stones, and glass

Bonus: Natural gas also is used to dry clothes

Recent days, due to environmental and economic and technological natural gas have become the fuel of choice for new power plants. Also operating costs for natural gas equipment are lower than those of energy sources




The oil and gas industry is the most highly regulated industry in the world when it comes to safety. It is rare now for oil companies to operate for several month or year without a single recorded case.
Some oil companies have spent a lot of money as the consequence of neglecting or ignoring safety issues. If you want to have a better understanding on the importance of safety in oil and gas industry, check out the BP’s oil spills in 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico in the united state that resulted into environmental pollution that could end up cost BP billions of dollars to clean up.

Because well-established safety policies and procedures appeared to have been ignored or neglected which result into death of eleven people on the rig floor, the CEO of BP was forced to resign and reputation of BP as an IOC has been tarnished

In order to keep oil and gas workers safe from injury and reduce the loss of life NEBOSH international technical certificate in oil and gas operational safety are significant to employers and companies as whole.

Everyone in his daily life are in contact with objects that depend on oil or natural gas on their making. For example In order for you are car to run it must be filled with oil, Most of you use gas for cooking.

Have you ever asked yourself where do this oil and natural gas come from?

Without using technical words, the article explains how oil and natural gas are formed with three easy steps. If a reader lack prior knowledge of oil and gas industry, do not worry the article uses simple language in order to give you a better understanding.


Note: Oil and natural gas are related products often found in tandem, so their process of formation is similar

Okay let’s see how oil and natural gas formed

Stage 1 – All of the oil and gas we use today began as microscopic plants and animals living in the ocean millions of years ago.. In the shallow water where these animals lived, sweep current comes on and pushes these animals down where there is not sufficient oxygen to live and so they die.

Over millions of years, these layers of sands and animals are burned and covered by more layers until the first layer get very deep.

Stage 2 – as they became buried ever deeper, heat and pressure began to rise. The amount of pressure and the degree of heat, along with the type of biomass, determined if the material became oil or natural gas.




In an area where more shallow and organic materials were buried in a short time we get heavy oil

In area where organic materials were buried very deep over 2,000 meters for long time we get only we get lighter oil

If organic materials buried more than 6, 000 meter deep and for a long time we get only  natural  gas


Stage 3 – after oil and natural gas was formed. They tended to migrate through microscopic pores in the surrounding rock.

Some oil and natural gas migrated all the way to the surface and ran away. Other oil and natural gas deposits migrated until they were caught under impermeable layers of rock or clay where they were trapped.

These trapped deposits are the reason why we find oil and natural gas today.
