The 532km pipeline is set for completion and to be commissioned in an estimated 18 months.

"The start of construction of the Mnazi Bay to Dar es Salaam Gas Pipeline Project has ushered in a new era for the Mnazi Bay concession and its partners," said executive chairman, Bob McBean.

“We are preparing our existing gas wells for full production into the pipeline and we are committed to proving up or otherwise discovering additional resources for incremental production.

“Acquiring new 3D seismic offshore Mnazi Bay is a logical first step in identifying our next drilling targets and we look forward to reporting the results of this work."

The work to acquire new seismic data is expected to commence before the end of the year.

Jaykaya Kikwete, president of the Tanzania, laid the foundation stone at the Kinyerezi gas receiving station for construction of the Mnazi Bay to Dar es Salaam gas pipeline project to commence.

Wentworth and its Mnazi Bay partners are in the final stages of sealing a gas sales deal to supply 80 mmcf/day of gas to this pipeline and have been requested by TPDC to increase this amount to 200 mmcf/day.
