The Tanzanian government has contracted Tanzania International Petroleum Reserves Limited (TIPER) to sustain power supply and provide space for storage of some liquid hydrocarbons that would have hindered production of natural gas at the Songosongo gas fields, All Africa reported.

The Tanzanian government has now embarked upon attracting investments in industries and manufacturing companies due to the need for sustainable power supply. Managing Director, Stephane Gay, said in a press statement, that the Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation had approached TIPER to urgently receive and store the condensates produced at the Songosongo gas field.

“We have so far received a full cargo of 646 tons, equivalent to 820cm of condensates and we expect more delivery between August and September this year,” said Mr Gay, according to East Africa Business Information.
