Statoil makes another high-impact gas discovery offshore Tanzania

Green Car Congress

Statoil reports another high-impact gas discovery offshore Tanzania; the discovery in the Piri prospect is Statoil’s and co-venturer ExxonMobil’s sixth discovery and the fifth high-impact discovery in Block 2 offshore Tanzania. Since 2012 we have had a 100% success rate in Tanzania and the area has become a core exploration area in a very short period of time. The well location is two kilometres southwest of the Lavani-1 well at 2,360-meter water depth.

We have initiated a new and ambitious drilling campaign offshore Tanzania following four successful discoveries during the first drilling phase. The Mronge-1 well discovered additional gas volumes and furthers the potential for a natural gas development in Tanzania.

Statoil makes third gas discovery in deepwater offshore Tanzania

Green Car Congress

Statoil’s Lavani-2 exploration and appraisal well has resulted in a new natural gas discovery offshore Tanzania. The Lavani-2 well was drilled to a total depth of 5,270 meters (17,290 ft) in water depths of 2,580 meters (8,465 ft). Tanzania currently has limited upstream gas activity, but the government has issued a number of exploration and production licences and is looking to become a new gas hub.

Researchers Finds Lake Tanganyika Has Experienced Unprecedented Warming Over Last Century

Green Car Congress

Lake Tanganyika is bordered by Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, and Zambia—four of the poorest countries in the world, according to the United Nations Human Development Index. An estimated 10 million people live near the lake, and they depend upon it for drinking water and for food. But as Lake Tanganyika warms, the mixing of waters is lessened, the scientists find, meaning less nutrients are funneled from the depths toward the surface.

Study Finds Indian Ocean Sea-Level Rise Threatens Coastal Areas; Climate Change Partly Responsible

Green Car Congress

The study indicated that the Seychelles Islands and Zanzibar off Tanzania’s coastline show the largest sea level drop. The Hadley circulation in the Indian Ocean is dominated by air currents rising above strongly heated tropical waters near the equator and flowing poleward at upper levels, then sinking to the ocean in the subtropics and causing surface air to flow back toward the equator.

Perspective: Why Carbon Emissions Should Not Have Been the Focus of the UN Climate Change Summit and Why the 15th Conference of the Parties Should Have Focused on Technology Transfer

Green Car Congress

US intelligence and defense agencies say such environmental changes can lead to energy insecurity, water and food shortages, and social instability. Post Bali, two approaches to Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) have been articulated: Cuba, India, Tanzania, Indonesia, China and others argue that IPRs needs to be addressed as a barrier within the technology transfer discussion; Australia and the US argue that IPRs is a catalyst, rather than a barrier, to technology transfer.
