    Kigoma North Member of Parliament (MP), who is also the shadow Minister for Finance, Mr Zitto Kabwe said in an opinion paper to congratulate the decision by the Minister for Energy and Minerals, Professor Sospeter Muhongo, to delay the fourth licensing round which was due to be held in Houston, Texas on Thursday this week.

    Mr Kabwe said it's a travesty that the government should continue giving multinational corporations oil and gas extraction licences while there is no competent policy or legislation to guide such a process. In his opinion paper, Mr Kabwe said that delaying of the licensing round alone is not enough.

    The Chairman of the Parliamentary Public Organisation Accounts Committee (POAC),Mr Zitto Kabwe (Kigoma North – Chadema)
    should be put on hold and postponed for ten years.

    "In this, we echo the demand of Parliament's Energy and Minerals Committee earlier this year (April 2012, Annual Report of the Committee) and the concerns of other informed citizens," he wrote.

    He said that Tanzania is on the precipice of an economic evolution with the recent discoveries of gas with confirmed reserves of 43 Trillion Cubic feet (TCF), roughly valued at 430 billion US dollars. He said that the country's nascent oil and gas industry is set to expand greatly with the upcoming Fourth Licensing Round, which, according to Minister Sospeter Muhongo, is scheduled to be launched in Houston, Texas on September 13.

    "It is very unfortunate that the recommendation to postpone the licensing round, supported by a Parliamentary Committee on Public Investments (POAC) and approved by a Parliamentary resolution, was largely ignored by the Ministry and TPDC," the Chadema legislator argued.Asked to comment on Kabwe's suggestions for a decade long delay in licensing oil and gas companies, Prof Muhongo replied via a text message, saying that he is away on official business.Recent discoveries in natural gas mainly along the Indian Ocean coastline, has attracted many multinational corporations including Brazil's Petrobas, Norway's Stateoil, British Gas which is in the process of buying Ophir Energy's stake and ExxonMobil of the US

    Tanzania |


    By In2EastAfrica Reporter


    All oil and gas licensing should be suspended for the next 10 years during which the country will develop capacity of Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) and put in place a regulatory framework.

    Sio wazo baya,lakini uchumi wetu hauturuhusu kuwa na uvumilivu huo,mambo hayaendi pesa hakuna,ni wakati muafaka wa kuanza kuchimba hiyo gesi na mafuta ili wananchi wanufaike,elimu iwe bure,afya nayo iwe bure,mishahara ya wafanyakazi iongezwe,miundo mbinu iboreshwe,serikali i subsdize bei ya bidhaa muhimu mfano chakula,mafuta,mabati,sementi Nk.Kwa maoni yangu gharama ya kusubiri miaka kumi ni kubwa mno.Tumeni wataalamu wa mikataba waangalie nchi kama Libya waliwezaje,nasikia na Uganda pia wana mikataba mizuri yenye masilahi kwa nchi na wananchi,ikiwezekana hiyo shugli ianze as soon as practicable ili tuondokane na umaskini huu tupate maisha bora.
    By the way Zitto wenzako wako kwenye harakati wewe unawazia mafuta?kulikoni?

    Zitto inabidi ajue kwanza biashara ya mafuta kabla ya kuweka muda ambao hauna msingi wowote. Sheria ya mafuta haitakiwi kuchukua zaidi ya mwaka kuweka!! Tanzania sio nchi pekee duniani yenye sheria ya mafuta hivyo hakuna sababu ya Msingi ukizingatia tuna wabunge na wahisani wenye nia ya kusaidia haitachukua zaidi ya miezi sita kuweka Bill bungeni nzuri ya yenye uwazi kuhusu Gas and Oil. Vilevile Zitto ni lazima uelewe kuanzia research mpaka production ya Oil and Gas inachukua miaka kumi na mbili hivyo ukisema tusubiri miaka kumi ina maana production ya Oil and Gas itaanza baada ya miaka ishirini na mbili!!. Serikali kwa miaka kumi ambayo search za mafuta zinaendelea inatakiwa Kujenga au kupanua barabara,bandari na kuelemisha watoto wetu wa vyuo ili waweze kufanya hizi kazi. Kuna Pipeline inatengenezwa kwa mkopo wa China lakini tunatakiwa kuweka barabara ya bandari. Hakuna ulazima wa kusubiri kama tutapata Bill ya Oil and Gas. Hivyo badala ya kuongee wabunge fanyeni kazi yenu na tupeni Bill ya Oil and Gas ! kama hamna uombeni tutawatafutia ya nchi nyingine muone zinavyofaidika badala ya kukaa na kuunda kamati kila siku. Kuna nchi kama Qatar ambayo ndiyo inaongoza kwa kuzalisha Gas,Norway ipo pia sasa miaka kuni ya nini???. Kama bunge la leo haliwezi hata ku copy sheria za Oil and Gas miaka kumi itasaidia nini!!!

    Mawazo yako ni mazuri ila nahofia kuna unafiki ndani yake.Nyie wanasiasa msituletee propaganda mufilisi hata kwenye mambo yanayohitaji utaalamu!!!! Naona sasahv kila mwanasiasa anaongelea gesi gesi... Hamna matatizo kwenye majimbo yenu? Hili swala la gesi mikataba inatolewa kisirisiri tu na mwananchi hausishwi kuamua!!! Wapeni wachina pekee ndo hawawezi kutufanyia ufisad na wanaweza kufanya equal sharing than 0.03% tunayoipata kwenye dhahabu kutokana na mikataba uchwara na nchi za ulaya
