Among East African Nations Uganda - Oil Tanzania- Gas Kenya -- Nothing Since 1930's Kenya Wanajenga A Refinary Kubwa E Africa nzima Songo Songo tie for Mombasa? Denmarks COWI A/S and the Kenyan firm Runji and Partners Consulting are to submit the findings of a feasibility study on a gas pipeline between Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and Mombasa in Kenya next month. The results will be discussed during a meeting between Tanzanian and Kenyan officials thats due to be held in Mombasa. The gas pipeline would theoretically be supplied by the Songo Songo and Songo Song West fields but part of the gas could also come from fields developed byBG Group (read our article ) in southern Tanzania. At a meeting in January about the project, an official from the East African Ministry of Cooperation, Musa Uleddi, estimated the countrys current reserves at 7.5 TCF. In addition to the Kenyan port of Mombasa, a major town in northern Tanzania, Tonga, would also be connected to the 500 km-long pipeline. A project to use the gas is already being studied in Kenya. Indeed, a 420 MW power plant that presently runs on heavy fuel could be modified to use gas. That would obviously involve work on the current plants turbines. The Tanzania Electricity Supply Co (Tanesco) is also seeking local outlets for its gas. It is currently in talks with Japanese investors and the World Bank on constructing a new power plant with a capacity of 240 MWE at Kinyerezi, a suburb of Dar es Salaam.
