gas fields were discovered in the Songo Songo Island region
of Tanzania in the 1970s. These gas fields will now be
utilised to develop cheap and reliable power by displacing
expensive liquid fuel by indigenous natural gas in Tanzania.
project involves collecting gas from three offshore wells
and two onshore wells, processing it in the gas plant
on the Songo Songo Island, exporting it to the mainland
via a submarine line and then piping it around 215 kms
to Dar-es-Salaam via a cross-country pipeline. This gas
will be utilised in the 112mw existing gas turbine power
plant in the Ubungo power plant and the Twiga cement plant
on Wazo Hill.
