On 28th January 2016 TATOA was represented to an event to launch a website platform that will feature local companies that are interested to offer goods and services to the oil & gas companies operating in Tanzania. Among the services normally procured by these oil & gas companies are transportation of goods and freight forwarding. Both these sectors are of huge interest to TATOA members. The launching of this platform was mainly because these oil and gas companies are committed to promoting local content and empowering Tanzanians to take advantage of the opportunities that exist and will emerge within the oil & gas sector.
To this end, Achilles, in collaboration with BG Tanzania and Statoil Tanzania AS, launched a supplier pre-qualification system for Tanzania, which will be used as the preferred mechanism to identify and select local suppliers and service providers for potential opportunities in the oil and gas sector in the country. This platform will offer Tanzanian suppliers a new route to market their expertise to the world’s biggest operators, ahead of potential multi-billion dollar project development opportunities in the country.
Members who are interested to register to the platform should log into www.achilles.com/east-africa-oil-and-gas and they will find instructions on how to register to the database and other terms and conditions.
