    Artumas asks Dar for $7m bailout for Mtwara gas-to-power project

    THE EAST AFRICAN

    Posted Saturday, April 4 2009 at 00:11

    The latest victim of the global crisis in Tanzania is a gas-to-power project whose developer now wants the government to inject Tsh9.5 billion ($7 million) into its operations.

    After having promised to light up rural areas in the southern regions of Tanzania, Artumas Group and Partners (Power) Ltd (also known as AG&P Power Ltd) is asking the Tanzanian government to provide it with funding in order to continue operating.

    In a letter to the government that The EastAfrican has seen a copy of, Artumas formally advised the government that the Mtwara Energy Project (MEP) is temporarily in financial distress.

    The bad news is that if no financial support is made available to the project by the end of April, it will fail.

    Despite the fact that the project is a public necessity and of great importance to the government and to the people of the southern regions, its revenue is insufficient to cover its costs.

    Mtwara is an area of strategic economic potential, in that it hosts the third largest port in Tanzania besides other economic activities that include fishing and growing of cashew nuts, sunflowers, sorghum and millet.

    Artumas further said the project had managed to survive over the past two years through the financial support of equity shareholders of the company.

    The company entered into an Interim Power Purchase Agreement (IPPA) with Tanesco in August 2006 to sell power to the latter.

    According to Artumas, the current price to Tanesco under the IPPA at about $0.1195 per KWh only partially covers the cost of power generation service, and anyway the IPPA expired on March 4.

    In advance of large-scale gas commercialisation, Artumas says it currently relies exclusively on financial markets for its capital, and that due to the financial crisis, continuation of this shareholder subsidy is no longer possible.

    However, industrial experts have questioned the rationale behind the Artumas request for money from government coffers, considering the fact that the investor had promised to invest in rural areas in the south of the country, which was also expected to speed up the country’s rural electrification exercise.

    Investigations by The EastAfrican have revealed that the company raised the funds to invest in the project after it had signed development agreements with the government by floating shares abroad.

    The shares of the company in Norway have since last year been heading down. The latest report made available to The EastAfrican showed that the shares had peaked at $10.6 (Kroner 70.25) on April 4, 2008, dropping to $0.19 (Kroner 1.25) on March 13 this year. The shares had started trading at $4.7 (Kroner 31.00) on July 8, 2005.

    On March 6, the company’s share price was as low as $0.14 (Kroner 0.93). On February 20, the shares had fallen to an all time of $0.12 (Kroner 0.85).

    Artumas said that to ensure viable continuation of the project in this interim phase, the MEP be provided with an interim Tariff Equalisation Fund (TEF), to be effective immediately and lasting until the MEP agreements come into full force and effect (the Transfer Date).

    The letter, signed by Artumas general manager Salvator Ntomola, said the amount requested is $7 million (Tshs9.5 billion) and could be funded at agreed monthly or quarterly instalments beginning March 2009.

    Artumas further said that as with the TEF guaranteed within the long-term MEP Agreements, this interim TEF would also be repayable to the government after the MEP has added sufficient customers in the region to be able to reduce the cost-reflective tariff below the national average tariffs.

    The energy firm said that the urgent request was based on facts that included recent signed documents between Artumas, Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC), Tanesco and the government of Tanzania for the MEP, which would become effective later this year, but not be in full force until the first quarter of 2010.

    According to the letter, these long-term agreements and current electricity legislation, provide for full cost-recovery tariffs.

    It added that during early years of the MEP the unit cost of providing electricity services to customers is high; therefore tariffs would be subsidised through a TEF provided by the government of Tanzania, deferred equity provided by Artumas, and grant provided by the Dutch Government.

    “These three specific components would enable Artumas to charge rates that are less than cost-reflective, thereby, minimising rate shock while maintaining financial viability of the project,” said the letter.

    However, these subsidies would not be available until the project reaches Transfer Date.

    Artumas argues that it has provided power to the region under the IPPA with Tanesco dated August 10, 2006.

    A source from government said last week that when the IPPA was signed, it was understood that its tariff wouldn’t provide full cost recovery, but that it was the expectation of all parties that the temporary arrangement would only be needed for six months to a year before the MEP documents came into full force.

    The source said due to the complexity of the project, negotiations took longer than expected and the IPPA was extended twice before the current expiration in March 2009.

    Losses suffered by Artumas under IPPA aren’t a new phenomenon.

    Prior to the IPPA, Artumas said that it believed that Tanesco was incurring similar losses resulting from a combination of high operating costs (mainly fuel costs used in power generation) and low revenue.

    “We understand that these losses were as high as $12 million per year and were mostly funded by the government’s subsidies to Tanesco,” added the letter.

    It is on this premise that Artumas wants to build its case to be assisted by the government.

    However, while Tanesco is a state enterprise, the former is a private company, industry observers noted.

    The firm said that the introduction of the IPPA transferred the problem from Tanesco to Artumas.

    Artumas agreed to shoulder the problem knowing that it was for a minimal period of up to one year.

    The reality now is that the timeframe for Artumas’ shareholders to carry the losses became longer and conditions in the financial markets have changed dramatically, so that raising capital for loss-making ventures .is no longer possible.

    The proposed solution by Artumas includes a full cost of service tariff on an extended IPPA at 36 US cents.

    This tariff is higher than the tariff Tanesco charges its customers.

    Thank u for the poster;

    Hiii issue ya Artumas ni serious sana ambayo isipokuwa handled vizuri Tanzania itakuwa the looser tu, kwa sababu ya watu wachache wenye interest binafsi, ni si masilai ya Taifa. Mwisho wa hii issue itakuwa ni Artumas kujitoa na projects zote under pipeline i.e Mtwara coridor, Liganda development, mchuchuma Coal mining zitaishia hewani. Nitaanza na ninavyoifahamu hiyo issue na kwa nini imefikia hapo:-

    Kwanza muhimu kujua kuwa Artumas hajafanya discovery ya mnazibay gas field, discovery ilifanywa na Agip pamoja na TPDC . Artumas amekuja kufanya gas development tu kwa hiyo haja invest kwenye exploration katika hiyo field, na gharama kubwa zaidi zipo kwenye exprolations. Katika hiyo Development Serikali ilikubaliana katika Production Sharing Agreement kuwa itafanya participation by 20%. This means kwenye investment zote atakazofanya Artumas katika kuzalisha Gas ( upstream) Serikali kupitia TPDC itachangia gharama ya 20%, hivyo maana yake katika cost recovery serikali pia itapata 20%, kabla ya kugawana faida. Na hiyo gharama ya kuchangia itarudishiwa Artumas after ku spend. Na kuna agreement pia za kulipa kidogo kidogo. WHY SASA IMEFIKIA ARTUMAS ANADAI PESA LEO !!!

    Answer
    Katika plan za Projects zilizokuwa zimepangwa ambazo Artumas angeweza ku recover hizo gharama na kuendeleza miradi mingine midogo kama ya Umeme Mtwara na Lindi zilikuwa kama zifuatavyo;-

    1. Electrification of Mtwara/ Lindi ( Imeshafanyika but Return on Investment -ve)
    2. 300MW large power scale to National Grid
    3. CNG ( Compressed Natural Gas) by ship to Kenya or else where
    4. Cement factory
    5. Fertilizer factory

    Nilibahatika kukutana na watu wazalendo wa karibu sana wanaoshughulikia hizo projects toka Wizara ya Nishati na Madini na TPDC. Nitaanza na Project ya kwanza:-

    1.Mtwara / Lindi Electrification
    Hii ndiyo project mama iliyofanya mradi uendelee ingawa ilionekana kabisa kama alivyoeleza kwenye gazeti hapo juu, haingeweza kulipa gharama, na kama wangepanga bei ya umeme ili irudishe gharama za uendeshaji tu basi wananchi wa Mtwara hawengeweza kulipia umeme. Hivyo ilionekana kuwa inahitaji sponsorship kama Dutch Embassy walivyofanya. Lakini ilikuwa ifanyike kwa lengo kuwa kutakuwa na miradi m ikubwa ya gas kama 300WM ambayo ingelipa gharama zingine zote.

    2. 300 MW power project.
    Mradi huu ndiyo uliokuwa first target ya kulipia gharama zingine zote. Ilikuwa umeme uzalishwe Mtwara usafirishwe kupitia Ruvuma hadi Makambako, na ambapo Ruvuma nayo ingefaidika na National Grid ambayo haijawahi tangu uhuru. Power demand ilikuwa tayari imeshapatikana ambapo Barick Gold mining walikubali kununua huo umeme na kugharamia transmission system hadi Makambako.

    Condition waliitoa hao Barrick ni kwamba hizo pesa ni Mkopo na watazirudisha kwa kulipa bill za umeme. Na wakataka ifunguliwe account separate ya kudeposite the amount to be agreed. Hiyo account itakuwa chini ya Tanesco na Barrick, hivyo baadaya ya pesa kuwa zimetimia basi project yote inarudishwa Tanesco. LAKINI TANESCO kwa sababu wanazojua wao wameikataa project wanang'ang'ania hizo pesa wapewe wao then wao ndiyo wasimamie mradi. Wakati Barrick wamewaambia kuwa walishatoa huko nyuma kama Billion 10 hivi, kwa makubaliano ya Tanesco wapeleke umeme lakini hadi leo pesa ililiwa na Mafisadi na umeme haupo huko. Barrick wanatumia umeme mwingi sana na wanadai operations cost zao half ni umeme, mind you hata hayo mafuta ya generator hawalipi kodi!!!!!

    Mradi kama huu tujiulize ungetoa ajira ngapi?? ungepunguza matatizo ya Richmond mangapi. Hapa ukiingia ndani kuna watu waliosababisha kukwamisha kwa masilahi binafsi kama yaleyale ya kutaka kununua generator za Dowans ( future plans za mafisadi).

    Hivyo Barrick ameamua kujitoa na ataendelea na magenerator yake kwa sababu ya Tanesco na viongozi Mafisadi. Na hivyo hivyo Artumas ambaye angekuwa supplier wa gas na TPDC ambapo Serikali kwenye hayo mauzo ya Gas kupitia TPDC inapata 50% na yote inakwenda hazina mbali ya 12% royality ambayo hiyo inachukuliwa kwenye gloss product kabla ya cost zote kukatwa. ( You can think how decision makers wasivyokuwa wazalendo and yet tunataka Tz iwe kama China)

    Hapo ndipo Artumas amechukia na kuanza kudai deni lake ili aendeshe miradi, na kufuatana na mikataba anaweza kusimamisha miradi kwa kisingizio hicho.

    3. CNG to Mombasa
    Hii nayo ilikuwa moja ya project zake kuwa kama njia ya kuongeza mauzo ya gas ili apate operations cost kwa ajiri ya miradi hiyo ya Mtwara /Lindi. Alitaka kusafilisha gas kwa meli na kuuza viwanda vya Mombasa baada ya kuona vile vya Dar vinatoshelezwa na ile Gas inayotoka Songosongo inayochimbwa na TPDC pamoja na PAET. Hili hata mimi siungi mkono, kwani kuuza malighafi then Kenya walipanga pia kuzalisha umeme na kutuuzia kwa kutumia Gas yetu!!! Huu ni ujinga lakini kama hatuna uzalendo wa kufikiri for Future Tanzania tutaendelea na huo mtizamo. Hili pia halijakubaliwa. ( Mind you miradi yote anayotaka kufanya ni lazima ikubaliwe na Serikali kwa gas ni mali ya serikali).

    4. Fertilizer factory

    Hii ni wazo nzuri sana ukiliangalia haraka haraka, kwani ni kweli Tanzania tuna import fertilizer kwa bei ya juu sana. Tatizo linakuja pale ambapo watu wanataka kutumia mianya hiyo ili kujinufaisha wenyewe, kama kuna sehemu itakayofanywa hujuma zaidi ya hizo mnazoongealea leo za DOWANS na RADA basi hii itakuwa hujuma kubwa kuliko zote Duniani.

    Huyo anayetaka kuweka kiwanda anataka auziwe Gas kwa 0.5 USD kwa 1Gj wakati gas kwa sasa viwandani inauzwa 15 USD for 1Gj ili atengeneze mbolea ambayo demand ya hiyo mbolea Tanzania yote ni only 30%. 70% atafanya export. Hivyo kama serikali itasema ina fanya subsidy maana yake inafanya subsidy kwa watu wa nje 70% export !!!!!! . The demand of gas atakayohitaji kama ikiuzwa kwa current price serikali itapata more than 20 Billion per year. Lakini yeye atalipa Not More than 7 Billion per year. Are u there?? . If so why dont we buy Fertilizer and sell it cheap to our wakulima with the use of Gas sales. Mbaya zaidi huyo mwekezaji ni private Company from Oman, we have example of private company kama Twiga Cement wanauziwa gas for very cheap ili waweze ku reflect price kwa wananchi, lakini wanatengeneza super profit na cement ni ghrama kuliko Africa yote ni ni ya tatu kwa gharama duniani. Kwa hiyo tusitegemee miujiza kwamba watakuja punguza bei ya mbolea.

    Katika hili kuna watu ambao wameingia ubia na hiyo Kampuni na ndiyo wanalazimisha kuwa lazima kiwanda kiwepo. Katika zama za uwazi hatuna budi kutaja kama mtu anahusika. Kuna group of top officials wanahusika wakiongozwa na Mkatekamba for those who know him mfuateni na mwulizeni if NOT TRUE.

    Artumas and TPDC has written a well report explaining all this issue for the benefit of country BUT Government through those officials are clossing their eyes for the seik of personal fulfulment.

    Kuna wawekezaji wengine wamefikia kusema wanaweza kuleta the same plant and buy gas for 5 USD per 1 Gj , lakini GOVERNMENT IMEMNG'ANG'ANIA HUYO FROM OMAN TO BUY GAS AT LOSS.

    KUTOKANA NA HAYO MAELEZO MENGI HAPO JUU, KAMA UKISOMA POLEPOLE UTAELEWA KWA NINI ARTUMAS AMEONA KUWA HATAPATA PESA ZA KUENDESHA HUO MRADI KWANI MIRADI YOTE INAPINGWA KWA MASLAHI YA MAFISADI NA NDIYO MAANA AMEAMUA KUDAI PESA ZAKE AMBAZO SERILIKALI ILITAKIWA ITOWE 20% ILI TPDC APARTICIPATE KWENYE MIRADI KWA MASILAHI YA TAIFA.

    NOTE: Kwa mradi mmoja wa Songosongo TPDC inakusanya si chini ya 17 Billion kwa mwaka na zote zinakwenda hazina, na hapo serikali pia inatakiwa itoe pesa za kuwekeza 20% ili ifaidike na recovery cost anayochukua PAET lakini haitaki pamoja na kupata pesa nyingi zaidi. Kwa maelezo zaidi unaweza kuwatembelea TPDC ofisini kwao au Artumas au Tem,belea mabanda ya TPDC Sabasaba na kwingineko utapata data zaidi kama nilivyopata mimi.


    Mungu Ibariki Tanzania na Ufanye Mafisadi wote wafe kifo cha mende kwani wewe ni Mweza wa vitu vyote.

    Artumas is a private company, Govornment has no share to it, But Govornment has a share on project to develop and produce and sale natural gas from mnazibay gas field. This partinarship is termed as PSA.

    safi kwa detail nzuri..

    jamani hivi uelewa wa wawakilishi wetu (wabunge) achilia mbali ukereketwa wao wa kijinga, nadiriki kusema wana upeo wa chini sana wengi waooo...hawastahili hata kidogo kuwa law makers na wawakilishi wa wananchi...ni mambumbuuuuuuu...

    ukifuatilia mijadala yao wakati wa kujadili mambo muhimu kama nishati, utagundua upeo wao mdogo kwa kuleta mipashoo zaidi kuliko hojaaa...
    sio watu makini jamani....wengi hawajui wajibu wao kama wabunge, wengine ni wapenda kuchangia kwa sifa ya kusikika kwenye media zetu ambazo pia ni zao la yale yale upeo mdogoooo...

    tumeshuhudia wabunge wachache wa upinzani (dr slaa, hamad, zitto, nk) wakichangia kwa umakini unaostahili katika bunge.

    haya matatizo ya tanesco/richmond/dowans na sasa yaongezeka arthumas ni dalili za umbumbu wetu katika kukabiliana na tatizo la nishati nchinii..

    haiwezekani kila siku tudai mafisadi wanaingilia miradi yetu, wansheria wanakosea mikatabaa, viongozi hawatambui wajibu wao...na bado wananchi tupo tupo tuuuu...

    kuna zaidi ya tatizo....hatuna rasilimali watuuu (we desperately need HUMAN CAPITAL)

    Tuna wanasheria waliobobea kwenye mikataba ya nishati??? tuna wabunge makini katika kujadili kuhusu sekta ya nishati? tanesco wakoje kwa upande wa menejimenti (bodi na wafanyakazi wa shirika)? Mgeni wetu EWURA anajenga vipi uwezo wa kuregulate sekta ya nishati? Media yetu ina watu makini(waandishi) wenye upeo na uchumi na sekta ya nishati????????????

    Mimi nafikiri hakuna tatizo kuwapa pesa ya bail out kwani tunajua kabisa kama serikali itatoa pesa hiyo lazima hiitoe either kama mkopo iwapo uchumi utapick au kupewa more shares katika kampuni.

    Hule mradi ni kwa ajiri ya maendeleo ya wananchi wetu, na kama modality za kupewa hiyo pesa sioni tatizo liko wapi wapewe tu.

    How big is the govt share in the project and is there an agreement to bail out the project with tax payers money wakikwama? recession is not a good enough reason to use tax payers money in private companies especially for a poor third world country like tanzania, private companies have economic strategists and plan A and B when it comes to finances, tusibebeshwe mzigo.
    shule, mahospitali etc etc hazina equipments, madawa wala wafanyakazi wakutosha, we dont see any bailouts..artumas yes u are serving the southern communities but the govt in my view should not pay anything unless walishakubaliana..nchi hii juzi tuu serikali imebail out trl na hii ajali lets see the losses...nchi inaendeshwa kiholela sana hii.

    Hayo ndiyo makosa makubwa yaliyofanyika ya kuikaribisha Kampuni toka nje ifanye investment kwenye gas yetu halafu Tanzania haina share. Basi kama kuna umuhimu wa kuwapa hizo $7 millioni basi zisitolewe kama njugu ni lazima tuhakikishe tunapata share zinazoendana na kiasi hicho cha pesa kwa kulinganisha na mtaji ambao hiyo kampuni ilianza nayo. Kamwe zisitolewe bila kupata shares zozote.

    Nimefuatilia hili suala. tatizo lipo kwa serikali na sio Artumas. Sirikali haitaki jamaa wa export GAS, hivyo jamaa wanaendesha kwa hasara. Nadhani hawa wa Canada hawana cha 10% hivyo wanaendesha biashara kwa TAABU mno!

    Mibongo ndivyo ilivyo.

    Bubu, be fair to these guys.
    Tatizo ni kwetu sisi. Hiyo $7 million ni small change. Biashara kubwa kwao iko katika ishu ya kupata mteja wa gas yao, ambao in this case ni Barrick. There is no way Artumas would jeopardise their market with Barrick or any other buyer. Kuuza gesi ni kazi mkuu, sio kama mafuta. On this, the bucks stops with Tanesco and the government. Believe you me, mfano deal lao likubali na Barrick, hiyo $7mil hata share holders wao watatoa. Lakini the fact is, these guys have been losing money because of our stupidity.
    Kuna makampuni makubwa zaidi yanaweza kuinunua Artumas na ku-fund project hizo zote (mfano big daddy wao Chevron), lakini kwa makampuni makubwa, Tanzania bado hakuna mafuta/gas ya maana wao waje kuwekeza. Kwahiyo kupata kampuni kama Artumas, na vingine vidogo vidogo ambavyo viko tayari kuendeleza sekta hii Tanzania, ni kitu ambacho tungeshukuru na kusaidia kazi ifanyike. Mchezo wa Tanesco (and whatever other powers be), ni ujinga mkubwa wa mwafrika na hatutakaa tuendelee kwa spidi hii.
    This country has gone to the dogs!! Damn, what a pace!

    That is the big mistake we have made. Tunakaribisha wawekezaji tunakuwa hatuna shares kwenye miradi yetu. Wakipata faida wanatafuna wenyewe wakipata hasara wanatudai tuwasaidie.

    Jasus,

    Katika utafiti wangu niliofanya, kati ya mikataba yote ambayo serikali ya Tanzania iliwahi fanya kwa masilahi ya Taifa nafikiri mikataba ya Petroleum ( Oil & Gas ) ndiyo the best. Kwa nini nasema hivyo:-

    Ukichukua mkataba wa Artumas pekee yake kama mfano ni kwamba

    Mwekezaji anaweka pesa zake katika utafiti ( mind u hapa tunaongelea kisima kimoja kuchimba si chini ya 15 USD Mil. kama bil. 17 Tsh) na anaweza akapata au akakosa huo ni utafiti achilia mbali gharama za tafiti zingine kama seismic n.k. Akipata Gas au Oil hapo ndipo Serikali inaingia akikosa kwa heri na pesa yake imekwenda na TPDC (serikali atafaidika na data pamoja na technology). Akipata selikali inatakiwa ishiriki kwa kutoa 20% ya gharama ambazo zitakuwa zimetumika katika mradi huo ili na serikali iweze kupata gawio la Recovery costs.

    Kama haitaweka hizo fedha basi serikali itapata Profit Gas/Oil and Royality tu. Na ndizo hizo fedha Artumas anazitaka itoe serikali ili nayo iwe imewekeza 20% na kama miradi ikifa na serikali ipate hasara.

    Kwa case ya Artumas Recovery of costs ni 60% na 40% ni profit, Royality ni 12% of gross product, ( TPDC % of profit Oil 75%, Artumas 25%) kwa hiyo baada ya kuzalisha tu let say 1000bbl of Oil. Artumas kama serikali itakuwa haijatoa bado ile 20% participation basi anachukua zote 60% ku recover costs zake, na kama serikali kupitia TPDC itatoa hiyo 20% ,
    basi , TPDC atapata kwanza 20% of 60%), then anaondoka tena anakwenda kwenye Profit Gas ambako kuna 40% anapata 75% of 40% as a National Oil company. Mind you wakati huo Serikali kama Serikali imeshachukua Royality 12% of Total kabla hamjaanza kugawana. Finally TPDC migao yake yote naye anapeleka hazina na serikali nayo inapeleka hazina. Calculate hom much do we get. Je na kama tukiwekeza hiyo 20% how much will we get.!!! Home work hiyo , mimi nimefanya homework ya kutafuta data.

    Na mikataba karibu yote ya Mafuta ipo kwa namna hiyo

    the key ina bidi turudi kwenye strategy yetu kuhusu baadhi ya sector ktk ubinafsishaji. tanesco reli, na maji zilitakiwa kubaki mikononi mwa serikali ama sivyo tutakuwa hostage wa maamuzi yetu, na kingine maamuzi mengi yamefanywa kwa maslahi ya watu binafsi, sasa wabunge wengi kwa uelewao mdogo walipitisha bila kuelewa wanapitisha nini

    Si kitu kipya kuchelesha projects hizi... Songosongo Gas to Power pia ilikutana na dhahama ya kifisadi ikawa delayed kwa urasimu wa kijinga ili kuipa IPTL mwanya. Matokeo yake tunayajua. 300MW project ilikuwa inaleta giza kwenye Dowans deal. Barrick wanatoa hela za mradi watu wanagoma kwa sababu za kishenzi!
