Exploration Database

The petroleum exploration database in Tanzania consists of numerous geological and geochemical studies, geological and drilling records from more than 100 boreholes and 45 deep wells with status and many thousands of kilometers of gravity, airborne magnetometer, and seismic surveys. A summary of each well, a full list of electric logs, mud logs, geological and engineering reports, and composite logs are available for inspection at TPDC's Exploration Office in Dar es Salaam. Several technical reports have been prepared from these data and provide an assessment of the hydrocarbon potential of Tanzania. Data packages for each of the exploration areas are also available for purchase.
