Tanzania's Camel Oil to enhance LPG supply

Camel Oil Company, which produces Cam Gas products, has vowed to expand business opportunities with a view to empower local entrepreneurs so that they can start and conduct own businesses.

The promise was made in Dar es Salaam by the company’s Director, Mahfudhi Maulid when talking about the importance of using gas as a source of domestic fuel.

However, he condemned the regular use of charcoal which he said does serious damage to the environment. He reiterated his company’s commitment in their programme of providing loans to small entrepreneurs especially women by giving them CAM GAS products to start their small businesses in their areas where most of them will use in cooking activities.

“CAM GAS has great opportunity to contribute to our country’s economy we thank our customers for their endless support, our distributors, stakeholders and government for their support in improving (Liquefied Petroleum Gas), known as CAM GAS, most of them have seen the opportunity in this and have used it effectivelly,” said Mahfoudh.

He said after CAMEL OIL recognised the importance of gas for every Tanzanians especially for those with low income, people living in cities and in villaje, CAM GAS have invested heavily in infrastructure for importation and distribution of gas product in the country and it have expanded the distribution system to enable new gas users to afford gas prices whereby some customers pay by installement.

“All these efforts introduced by our company target common Tanzanians, small enterprenuers, middle SMEs, private and public institutions to enable them to use gas and quit deforestation practices which is very common all around the country”. Until the end of 2013, gas prices was untouchable.

Among other factors which contributed to the gas hike were the fact that there were very few importers for example on small gas barrels weighing 15 kilogrammes were sold at 65,000/- and by that time one USD was down to 1,400/-.

But but as we speak today when dollar is up to 2100/-, the same barrel with 15 kilogramme is sold by CAMEL for 46,000/- only, which is the reduction of 30 per cent” he said.
