4th Tanzania Offshore Licensing Round Launch and Roadshow Calendar
General Information:
Day 1 of each Roadshow will be the formal opening by the Minister of Energy & Minerals followed by presentations from TPDC outlining the BR terms and conditions, fiscal regime, taxes etc. followed by TPDC technical presentations. In turn, these will be followed with additional technical presentations by ION GeoVentures and Western GECO. There will also be an informal data room for review of the datasets associated with the BR blocks. A Reception will follow the day’s formal proceedings allowing an opportunity to network.Day 2 will be for “one on one, business networking opportunities” between IOC staff, TPDC management and members of the Ministry. These appointments will be by invitation only and must be requested and booked ahead of time.

Bid Round Data Package (BRDP):
The Bid Round Data Package (BRDP) will consist of a number of the onshore and shallow water released wells (well logs and well report images (PDF, JPG, TIF), LAS files), Operator’s seismic data (SEGY) from the relinquished blocks where available, legacy seismic (SEGY) from onshore and shallow water offshore, various geological reports and studies. All of this will be built into a GIS project. The seismic (SEGY) will also be loaded to SMT’s Kingdom suite and perhaps Petrel and be available for review. ION GeoVentures SPAN data and Western’s reprocessed data in the area will also be available for viewing. ION’s SPAN data and Western’s reprocessing will not form part of the BRDP and can be reviewed and purchased under normal business arrangements at any time.

We will also be organising more formal data rooms in Houston, London and Dar es Salaam during October, early November and late November respectively. The format would be for IOC’s to book time slots to review the BRDP in private. Attendees and BRDP purchasers will be expected to complete a Confidentiality Agreement.
