Tanzania Port Authority (TPA) is planning to develop a modern jetty at Raskazone oil terminal in Tanga port capable of accommodating medium-sized oil tankers. Tanga Port manager, Percival Salama revealed the news during a meeting with Ugandan oil and gas stakeholders who visited Tanga to explore prospects of using the port for oil imports to Uganda through central and Tanga railway lines.

He said at present the project is at the stage of engaging a consultant following a successful completion of a geotechnical survey carried out by University of Dar es salaam engineering company BICCO. The government has decided to use the Tanga port as a secondary point of entry option for petroleum products.
