Tanzania is looking to build a gas pipeline to take some of its production to neighboring Uganda, according to reports. State oil and gas firm TPDC said that the potential pipeline would start in Dar es Salaam, then pass through the Tanga port on the Indian Ocean and to Mwanza, a port on Lake Victoria before crossing the border to Uganda.

TPDC is said to be looking to hire a contractor to conduct a feasibility study to determine current and future natural gas demand “by identifying all potential customers.” It did not give an estimated volume.

The study would also establish the most economically viable route for the pipeline, it said.

Since 2016 the two countries have been involved in a pipeline project, having agreed to develop a crude oil export pipeline to help transport land-locked Uganda’s crude reserves from fields in the country’s west to offshore markets.

Tanzania holds a tremendous amount of natural gas off its coast in the Rovuma Basin, estimated at nearly 60 trillion cubic feet.
