Orca Forms Division To Build East African Pipeline

September 2010 Vol. 237 No. 9

Orca Exploration has created an infrastructure division to help build a natural gas pipeline network in east Africa.

EastCoast Transmission and Marketing will first focus on expanding the onshore pipeline carrying gas from Songo Songo off Tanzania’s east coast to the commercial capital Dar es Salaam. This will require the twinning of the existing 207-km pipeline from Somanga Funga, where the marine pipeline from the Songo Songo gas field connects to the mainland, to the pipeline’s current terminus at Dar es Salaam. The pipeline could be extended along the coast – north to Mombasa and south to Mtwara near the border with Mozambique – near the Mnazi Bay gas discovery.
