Plans are underway to turn a beach into a new oil storage terminal in Zanzibar.
According to local media reports, a feasibility study has started, supported by the world bank, to develop a storage facility on 399.25 hectares of land for the distribution of fuel and natural gas.
Ministry of land, water, energy and environment’s principle secretary Ali Halil Mirza is reported as saying: ‘Provisional assessment indicates that Mangapwani-Bumbwini coastal area is geographically suitable because of proximity to other ports in East African region and sufficient sea depth.’
The new site for the facility would include a gas depot.
