Tanzania, Zambia to build billion-dollar oil pipeline

Tanzania and Zambia aim to construct a $1.5 billion oil pipeline running from Dar es Salem to Ndola.

Tanzania’s Energy Minister, Medard Kalemani, last week noted, that the project would reduce challenges in transporting petroleum products for countries that use Tanzania’s ports to import fuel.

“The project will be implemented jointly by Zambia and Tanzania,” he said.

Zambia currently uses the port of Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania to import the majority of its petroleum from the Middle East

The Minister did not give a time frame for when pipeline construction would begin, however, he noted that a feasibility study was slated to begin in the coming fiscal year.

Africa Oil & Power returns to London for the second year, to host the AOP Investor Forum 2019. The one-day conference will be held on June 17, 2019 at the Royal Institute of British Architects.
