Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) has started issuing consultancy tenders for its planned liquefied natural gas (LNG) project, raising hopes that development could start to gain momentum to supply a more buoyant global LNG market.The government on 12 April invited expressions of interest (EoIs) from consultants to act as transaction adviser for the government negotiation team. The work would include developing a commercial, legal and technical framework for the LNG project, building capacity and supporting the government team, and devising the best approach for negotiating the host government agreement.
