Sahara Tanzania doubles its petroleum products storage capacity


Earlier this year, Sahara Tanzania announced the expansion of its petroleum products storage capacity in the country to 72 million liters. Nigerian energy and power conglomerate Sahara Group has been present in Tanzania since 2015, starting with 10 loading arms and four storage tanks with a combined storage capacity of 36m litres. It has now expanded such infrastructure to 20 loading arms and eight storage tanks.

The infrastructure expansion is ine line with the company’s commitment to support products availability in East Africa. Sahara Tanzania is in fact currently involved in expanding storage capacity of automotive gas oil, premium motor spirit and Jet A1. The company has notably committed to build two liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) tanks with a capacity of 6,000 cbm.

Sahara Group is one of the largest and most integrated African energy and infrastructure conglomerates with significant business interests across the upstream, midstream, downstream, power generation and logistics & trading industries across the continent and globally. The group started in 1996 as Sahara Energy Resource to trade petroleum products, entering Ghana in 2000, Côte d’Ivoire in 2001, Tanzania in 2015 and Zambia and Guinea-Conakry in 2017. Since 2017, it has consolidated all its petroleum trading, marketing, distribution and storage activities under a single entity, Asharami Synergy.
