Edinburgh-based oil and gas explorer Bowleven has ditched plans to buy stakes in two Tanzania gas projects for up to $28 million (£19.6m).

The Africa-focused firm said in November that it had signed a conditional heads of terms with Aminex to buy a 25 per cent interest in the Kiliwani North Development Licence, which is soon to begin production, along with a 50 per cent interest in the “highly prospective” Ruvuma petroleum sharing agreement.

At the time, Bowleven chief executive Kevin Hart said the purchase would have given the company “the opportunity to participate in highly attractive production and material appraisal/exploration assets without compromising its robust balance sheet and strong capital discipline”.

However, in a brief statement today, the Aim-quoted firm said that it had decided not to pursue its interest in the proposed acquisition of the stakes “following the completion of due diligence”.

Aminex added: “In discussions during the due diligence process, a forward work programme could not be agreed which would be acceptable to Aminex, its lender, the Tanzanian authorities and Solo Oil.”

Solo Oil has a 25 per cent interest in the Ruvuma scheme – with Aminex holding the remaining 75 per cent – and a 6.175 per cent stake in Kiliwani North, of which Aminex owns 55.575 per cent.

Bowleven last month told investors that was making good progress with an onshore development in Cameroon, where an extended flow testing programme at its Bomono permit – completed as part of plans to supply gas for a power scheme in the region – showed support for plans for an initial supply of about five to six million standard cubic feet of gas per day.



In order to understand the present scenario in Tanzanian oil and gas sector, it is important to take a traditional outlook from where our country is coming from

The past scenario for Tanzanian oil and gas sector

The 1950s- BP and Shell drilled and discovered dry hole

In1969-TPDC was established by government to help develop and handle oil and gas sector and also offered exploration permits with government  and could get into partnership with foreigner associates through Production sharing agreement

In 1969-AGIP began discovery offshore after finalized production sharing contract with TPDC

The 1970s- The nation was not easy to attract foreign companies that would provide know-how and financial commitment this was because of inadequate facilities and being far away from market
In 1974- Gas deposits was discovered at songo songo area (but was not commercial v viable)

The 1980s- Shell and variety of foreign companies did seismic and sunk hole onshore and offshore

In 1982- Another Gas reserve was found in Mnazi Bay
In 1983- There was low oil price and, for this reason, it become more difficult than ever to draw in worldwide investors.
The 1990s- The work a project based on the 1974 Songo Songo gas area began evolving

In 1992-Tanzania released a variety of power change projects, such as a National Energy Policy, which began out up kind of market participation in creating electricity

In 2004-little production began at songo songo field

The Current circumstances for Tanzanian oil and gas sector
Despite the recent low oil price, Tanzanian oil and gas sector has enhanced considerably over the last several years.

For long, it could not create its gas sources because the discoveries were not considered for commercial viable.

The foreign oil companies that had capability were simply not fascinated in making a financial commitment.

The first significant project, the Songo Songo gas-to-electricity project, only came into being with contributor assistance.

Nowadays, a variety of oil and gas companies working in Tanzania, such as some of the giant oil player.

The nation, therefore, is based less on growth assistance for enhancing the oil market.

The change of the whole lawful and management structure that controls oil sources, which is continuous, indicates to a come back to a more effective part of the state.

The completions of Mtwara- Dar es salaam gas pipeline project in Oct 2015 plus the LNG place plan could put Tanzanian oil and gas sector t in the next level.

The attempt has been done by the govt to build up local content indication many Tanzanians would have fun with the whole sequence of oil and gas sector and the resources would benefit people and nation in common at the time production starts which is predicted at least in 2022.

There brighter days ahead for Tanzanian oil and gas sector

In the context of massive natural gas (and hopefully oil) following the findings of immense commercial quantities in various parts of Tanzania including Mtwara, Lindi Mkuranga and cost regions

The best part of us expect the proportion of Tanzanian youth in the natural gas sector to increase Substantially.However, This is likely to happen downstream in the context of Local content through youth participations in the entire oil and gas value chain.

For this to happen, however, Tanzanian youth and those in and near oil and gas are found (Mtwara, Lindi and Coast regions). Need various entrepreneurial interventions. Guess what? These include training, coaching and access to finance

Statoil has been taking part to serve Tanzanian youth
I t should be noted that the future of oil and gas sector depend on Today’s youth.And most youth should be trained and coached to stimulate entrepreneurship skills in oil and gas

For this reasons Statoil in early September 2014 had introduced the hero of tomorrow (HOT) business competition which invited youth aged 18-25 years live in Mtwara and Lindi to share business ideas which aim in stimulating entrepreneurship skill among youth and encourage them utilizing opportunities emerging from oil and gas activities in the regions

Read :2 Tanzanian Boom Town For Oil and Gas Investment

The second phase of competition winner will be awarded 5000USD which is approximately up to 10 Million Tanzanian shillings

Heroes of Tommorrow 2015 invites youth from ages 18 to 25 from Lind and Mtwara which stand the chance to be turned into business plan.

And We all know in the last decades Mtwara and Lindi region were no-go zones because of poor infrastructure and lack of power most youth residing in the region these regions have been rushing into Dar es salaam to look for opportunities.

But As Statoil developing entrepreneurship skills in these areas will attract more Tanzanian youths to go back to Mtwara and Lindi where there are more natural resources that can be turned into wealth

Owing the fact that oil and gas sector employ small share of workers. This Statoil’s intervention would make youth believing their own destiny instead of hoping someone will hire them.

After joining the league of oil producing nations, Ghana’s uphill task was to manage the high expectation that suddenly oil discovery holds the panacea for the country problems— from unemployment to more revenue translating to huge economic gains.

The high expectations were as a result of the unavailability of information to Ghanaians and even prospective industry players on the industry.

The celebration that characterised the announcement of the discovery of oil in commercial quantities in 2007 is today making things worse as people still asked the question “where is the oil money.”

The announcement of millions of barrels oil find in 2007 flung the nation into a state of ecstasy when politicians and other state officials highlighted the economic salvation that the oil find was likely to bring.

Among them was the pronouncement of former President John Agyekum Kufuor, in his interview with the foreign press, that Ghana would become an ‘African Tiger’ and the discovery would make the country ‘fly’ by giving it the needed boost to improve its economy drastically.

President Kufuor further emphasised the monetary value of oil and stated that the money was needed to build schools, roads and hospitals.

In the run-up to the 2008 elections, the major political parties all made big promises targeted at the burgeoning petrochemical industry in the Western Region. Key promises were made regarding the creation of jobs through the establishing of petrochemical, fertiliser and liquefied petroleum gas industries.

Almost a decade

On the back of these high expectations, triggered by speculative pronouncements almost a decade after the discovery and production gave many Ghanaians a false hope.

Benchmark revenue dipped, transfers to the holding funds also dipped, which triggered the depletion of the Stabilisation Fund.

In the oil and gas sector, having all Ghanaians on the same page is essential to a highly efficient stakeholder engagement.

Though the Petroleum Revenue Management Act 815, 2011 provides that for the purposes of accountability and transparency, petroleum receipts, in whatever form, shall be published in the Gazette and at least two state own newspapers within 30 calendar days after the end of applicable quarter.

The Act went further to state that the Minister of Petroleum shall publish the total petroleum output lifted, and the reference price in the same manner online, which seems to be the perfect steps towards holistic governance principles on the part of the agent (government) towards the shareholders (people of Ghana).

If what is published per the dictates of the Act and a large number of Ghanaians are unaware of key information due to technicalities, they would be unable to see the benefits of the industry and the dynamics of price hike and its dips.

However, in upholding the rules prescribed in the Act, there seem to be what we call short-termism or the tendency to foreshorten the information horizon applied to investment decision.

The people of Ghana, who are the resource owners, are faced with the reduction in shareholders’ welfare and also incur agency cost which arise as a result of the shareholders attempt to monitor and know what is going in the industry.

Bridging the gap

Publishing of total petroleum receipts, lifting and the reference price on the website of the Ministry of Finance will be difficult to digest by majority of people of Ghana.

For all to appreciate what comes in as petroleum revenue and mode of disbursement, in accordance to Article 36 of the 1992 Constitution, there is the need for bridging the information gap.

Information about the industry needs to be brought down to level of the trader at the market who does not understand what is published on the website of the Ministry of Finance.

For instance, oil companies in Tanzania and the government translate the contents to Swahili and other dominant local languages for people to appreciate the trends.

In the condition of an ‘ideal speech’ situation, managers of the funds or revenue from the oil and gas sector must work towards a common goal.

The process should be devoid of technical presentations, and all the stakeholders should be on the same page.

The celebration of oil

It is important to note that Ghanaians are aware of the lapses in the issues of the extractive sector from the days of gold, timber, bauxite and manganese, and it is, therefore, critical to ensure education to raise consciousness to encourage mutual disclosures between government through critical and healthy debate.

That will ensure understanding, rather than mere words that will not bring transformation.

The Act is expected to provide the framework for the collection, allocation and management of the revenue in a responsible, transparent, accountable and sustainable manner for the benefit of the citizenry.

It is good that Ghana took steps ahead of many nations to put in place a Petroleum Revenue Management Act.

However, there is the need to do more to ensure an enhanced reporting system since reporting the petroleum receipts are not enough, but must go with corresponding sustainability reporting to provide stakeholders with additional information.

It is, therefore, important to ensure free flow of accurate information about the petroleum receipts and expenditure instead of allowing politicians to tell the electorate the embellished truth skewed for political




With recoverable oil reserve estimates of approximately 750 and 600 MMbbl in Uganda and Kenya respectively, and with government share of the reserves expected to be about 30–50%, the potential impact on economic development in these countries could be great.

However, new infrastructure, including an export pipeline, is required to enable commercialization of these discoveries, says an analyst with research and consulting firm GlobalData.

Overall oil production in Uganda is forecast to peak at about 200,000 b/d by 2023, while Kenya’s production is estimated to reach approximately 85,000 b/d by 2027, provided the export pipeline is in place. According to Jonathan Markham,

GlobalData’s upstream oil and gas analyst, while a range of possible pipeline routes to ports in Lamu, Mombasa or Tanga have been proposed, upstream development in the region has stalled due to a lack of progress in developing an export route for these inland discoveries. “Operators have been lobbying for an export pipeline since the discoveries were made to enable development of the area,” said Markham.

“Tullow Oil and Africa Oil have cautiously welcomed progress made in agreeing a pipeline route from Uganda through northern Kenya to Lamu, but Total prefers routes further south, citing security concerns in northern Kenya.”

The analyst adds that the development of an export pipeline would also be a driver for upstream exploration in the region.

Some blocks have already been licensed by governments in central and eastern Africa, but the remote locations have dampened interest from major oil companies.

“Current license holders view new basin exploration as an area with high growth potential, with South Sudan, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo all possible beneficiaries of new pipeline routes,” said Markham.

“Discoveries in Kenya and Uganda have favorable subsurface characteristics and relatively low exploration and appraisal costs compared with the deepwater dominated exploration in West Africa. Estimated full-cycle capital expenditure per barrel for these upstream developments is about US$8–12, which is increasingly enticing, as the oil and gas industry cuts back on costs. However, without an economical export route, the inland discoveries will remain commercially unviable at current oil prices.”

Oil workers drilling for oil on rig

Tanzanian oil and gas industry is another name for wealth.

People make hundred may be thousands of dollars in Tanzanian oil and gas industry.

Do not believe me?

 If you want to understand what I am talking about, check out the lifestyle of oil and gas investors. You will be amazing.

Back in July 2015, when I visit Oysterbay Dar es salaam, an area where oil investors have some offices. what happened? Yeah, I got shocked once I found a lot of expensive cars.

I talk to myself “who are the owner of all these cars” I didn’t get an answer until I asked a watchman who was standing in front of an existing door and he told me “ owners are oil and gas investors.

What makes the difference between investors and us?
Not because you lack talents, not because they are better and smarter than us. So what? It’s pretty simple because they have access to information you don’t.

When I look at Tanzanian oil and gas industry, there opportunities to everyone. No matter what is your pocket size and background,

Tanzanian oil and gas market offer wide range of options for investment opportunities

The article discusses multiple ways of investment in Tanzanian oil and gas industry in both upstream and downstream sectors.

And the end of the article you will analyze the best option for investment to secure better profit

Okay, let’s face them
Downstream investment opportunities

Supportive services
It involves offering service to the companies that are involved in the oil and gas industry. This includes transport services, oil pipeline, shipping and logistic services, accommodation services like hotels etc Oil and gas workers and executives need transport from offices to the field

Diesel supply. Is the is the profitable investment in Tanzanian oil and gas industry.

Have you ever noticed the unreliable electricity in our country? .is for this reasons many organizations choose to buy their own generator. And most of these generators are driven by diesel.Many People use generators at home. Agency, Barbershops, Not talk media houses and automotive industry

Cooking gas: is the good business for smart entrepreneur like you.Why? Many Tanzanian have been starting to use gas for cooking and domestic purpose. With approximately 55.5 trillion cubic feet of natural gas discovered in Tanzania. Cooking gas would be in dire demand. And would result in better return

Upstream opportunities in Tanzanian oil and gas sector

In upstream sector is where lots people try hard to make me believe, Tanzanians we can’t afford invest in it because of immense financial capital and advanced technology required in these kind of investment.

However, when it comes investment in Oil and gas industry capital and technology is popular excuses to the best part of us. And for this reasons we are in the back bench in Oil and gas sector.

Okay let’s meet them

Exploration projects
In this projects interested Tanzanians will be required to buy or lease and involving in searching for oil and gas. If you strike oil or gas, you will have profit up to 10 times for what you invested

But, if not, you will lose everything. It costs, at least, $ 500,000 a day to search for oil in the deepwater.So a day you spend $ 500,000 in a month you will spend $ 500,000 * 30= 15000,000USD.

What if exploration process takes more than a month? Can you imagine? you lease land for millions of dollars.  And you spend $ 500,000 a day to search for something that you are not sure either you will find it or not.

This business has high risk and suitable for company having high-risk tolerance

Services business.

The entire process of oil, gas exploration and production done by oil companies require wide range of heavy equipment and instruments.

To make the process of oil and gas exploration into fruition and avoid unnecessary accidents and loss, this equipment require constant maintenance.

And Is where the idea of service company begin. However, this kind of investment requires expertise as well as advanced technology
