BRIEF HISTORY OF THE PROJECT

Norad has a long history in providing assistance to Tanzania and its petroleum sector. The cooperation goes back to the establishment of a Petroleum Data Archive at the TPDC in Dar Es Salaam, with Norwegian support provided from 1985 to 1997. At that time, considerable resources were used to reformat Tanzanian petroleum data onto more modern storage media. The data project was part of a larger project, which also focused on supporting the commercialization of the Songo Songo gas project.
