Tanzania Oil & Gas Report 2016: Interviews
- James Mataragio, Managing Director of the Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC), who discusses the restructuring of the local oil and gas market and unveils the company’s long-term plans.
“I hope that international companies will realize the real potential of Tanzania for both oil and gas. We have, to date, barely explored half of the country, yet from what we have witnessed so far, the potential is absolutely enormous,” Mataragio said.
- Jamidu Katima, Chairman of the Tanzania Energy, Water and Utilities Regulatory Authority (EWURA), who speaks about the organization’s restructured role in the country’s oil wealth.
“We […] see ourselves as the guardians of Tanzania’s natural resources and of ensuring that the country’s petroleum wealth is used for the benefit of the entire population and the national economy,” Katima said.
- Øystein Michelsen, Country Manager for Tanzania of Statoil, who evaluates the recent discovery of considerable offshore gas in Tanzania.
“To attain an optimal level of local content in developing Tanzania’s gas resources, effective collaborative efforts between Statoil, the suppliers, and the government will be absolutely imperative,” Michelsen said.
- Neil Ritson, Chairman of Solo Oil, explains what drew the portfolio investment company into Tanzania in the first place and why the East African country remains a top destination for investors.
- Salim Bashir, Partner at KPMG, assesses the local market’s comparative competitiveness, the importance of infrastructure growth, and Tanzania’s potential as an oil and gas producer.
“Tanzania certainly needs additional FDI to continue to explore the larger part of the country which remains unexplored and to monetize existing gas finds… everything will now hinge on how attractive the country can make itself relative to the rest of the region,” Bashir said.
