Word from the chairman of the board

I am honored and privileged to head Association of Tanzania Oil and Gas Service Providers (ATOGS) as the Board Chairman.

I had a successful career in the Oil & Gas sector in Europe and later started to take great interest in Tanzania’s Oil and Gas sector, which is now essential for our economy due to large gas discoveries. I wanted to take a part in adding to it’s successful growth, so when I realized an opportunity within the field which needed further development, I returned back to Tanzania in 2016, took charge and founded ATOGS with the aim to promote Local Content and enhance it in every way possible. With a strong Board, Management and Secretariat team of experienced professionals, my vision is on the right path to excel further in achieving our targets.

The Association of Tanzania Oil and Gas Service Providers (ATOGS) was established to Advocate, Lobby, Represent, Convene, focus on Compliance and Monitoring in Tanzania Energy, Oil & Gas sector. We are well recognized by all key stakeholders in the Government, offshore, energy, renewable, oil and gas industry. ATOGS was inaugurated on 27th June, 2017 by Her Excellency Samia Suluhu Hassan, by then was Vice President of the United Republic of Tanzania (URT). Since then, we have been committed to enhancing the Local Content, industry’s commercial viability and sustainability, as well as promoting the interests and integrity of service providers in Tanzania, to ensure that they carry out their activities to the highest professional standards achievable but also tap into the business opportunities available in various sectors.

Our key mission is to promote the capabilities and expertise of the Tanzanian Service Providers. We also engage and collaborate with industry stakeholders, Associations and Government agencies for the benefit of the Tanzanian Energy, Oil & Gas Industry.

I want to thank my Board Members, Management, Secretariat team and stakeholders for their Passion, Commitment, Integrity, and Hard Work. Your dedication is reflected in the reputation ATOGS enjoys within Tanzania and abroad. Let us continue our mission by adding success to Tanzania’s economy, to innovate and improve the Energy, Renewables, Oil and Gas industry, and help solidify Tanzania’s position as a beacon and Energy Hub in East Africa.

I take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our website and look forward to working with Government, its agencies, stakeholders, regulatory bodies, goods and service companies and Local suppliers as we continue our journey to deliver the economic prosperity benefits we can all share.

Thank you.
