Dar es Salaam to supply affordable gas

The state-owned Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) has launched a $2.8m project to supply residential houses and light industry in Dar es Salaam with affordable compressed natural gas (CNG).

The gas pipeline - currently under construction - will run from Ubungo in the northern Dar es Salaam to the industrial area Mikocheni in the north-east of the city.

Local engineers and technicians are enrolling in training courses at the Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT), the Bureau of Industries Corporation (BIDCO) at the University of Dar es Salaam and Vocational Education and Training Authority (VETA).

The training courses will teach operatives how to carry out natural gas pipeline connections and installations, as well as maintenance.
