The Association of Tanzania Oil and Gas Service Providers (ATOGS) has been formed to act as a convening body for different players across the full value chain of the Oil & Gas industry in Tanzania. ATOGS seeks to represent interest of the local providers as companies position themselves to participate fully in the emerging sector.
Particular areas of interest for ATOGS are:
- Policy advocacy for promotion of local content in the development of the Oil & Gas industry.
- Development of internationally recognised technical and safety standards for local providers.
- Creating a trusted and credible network of providers to facilitate local and international partnerships.
ATOGS was founded in recognition of the opportunities that lie ahead for local companies off the back of the large gas deposit discoveries in Tanzania, the new Uganda to Tanzania crude oil pipeline and the aspiration for development of gas distribution networks in major cities.
