    Tanzania plans to spend $55.1 billion to connect homes, industries and institutions in Dar es Salaam to a natural gas system.



    A 2007 pilot project proposed that a natural gas network that includes three trunk pipelines of 65 kilometres and 15 compressed natural gas (CNG) stations be set up to meet this need.

    Charles Sangweni, the Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) senior research officer, directorate of marketing and investment, said the project implementation phase will take approximately three years.

    TPDC will partner with Pan Africa Energy Tanzania Ltd to do this, initially targeting 200 vehicles, 100 households, 10 hotels and institutions as well as three CNG stations. During the pilot project, one gas station was completed at Ubungo and more than 40 vehicles were converted for CNG use.

    TPDC is already constructing a pipeline worth Tsh4.5 billion ($2.8 million) to Mikocheni light industrial area with take-offs to University of Dar Salaam and Ardhi University.

    I am of opinion that more should be done to promote use natural gas vehicle given we have abundant reserves of natural gas. The goverment should lower taxes on natural gas vehicles and conversion kits. Further compressed natural gas station. should be built in all major towns.
