At a meeting that took place at the recent Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference (ADIPEC) www.adipec.com, the organisers DMG Events along with their strategic Tanzanian partners Ocean Business Partners Tanzania, reaffirmed their commitment to cooperate on the fourth edition of the Tanzania Energy Congress to be hosted in Dar es Salaam on August 3-4, 2022.

“It could not come at a more critical time for us Tanzanians,” said Mr. Abdulsamad Abdulrahim, Director of Ocean Business Partners Tanzania, “we have been waiting patiently on the side-lines to establish and develop a national energy industry, for the local economy, for local capacity building, and for the benefit of Tanzania.”

The Congress, which is held under the patronage of His Excellency January Yusuf Makamba,

Minister for Energy of the United Republic of Tanzania, will highlight the plans and priorities of the Ministry of Energy with regards to the next strategic steps in both the energy and hydrocarbons sector in Tanzania. His Excellency Makamba said in a statement to the organisers that the “Congress will act as a forum for both national and international business leaders, investors, and new contractors to network and exchange ideas, with the ultimate aim of developing and identifying new opportunities which will exist within the energy sector of Tanzania.”

Makamba went on to extend a personal invitation, “I would like to actively encourage all companies involved in the energy sectors of Tanzania or those seeking opportunities within it, to attend and participate in this crucial industry event and I look forward to personally welcoming you to Dar es Salaam in August 2022.”

Her Excellency President Samia Suluhu Hassan, who took office in March 2021, has made an effort to create a more conducive business environment and her newly appointed Energy Minister Makamba, is bullish about the government’s LNG aspirations, with negotiations starting up again between the Tanzanian government, Shell and Equinor about a Host Government Agreement (HGA) for a US$30bn liquefied natural gas (LNG) project.

Tanzanian leaders are hoping to come to an agreement with the companies by the end of this year.
