Egyptian TAQA Arabia launches Tanzania’s first natural gas fueling station

TAQA Dalbit, a subsidiary of Egyptian energy company TAQA Arabia, has opened Tanzania’s first natural gas fueling station and conversion center for vehicles.


The new station will be operated under the Egyptian brand Master Gas, a subsidiary of TAQA Gas. TAQA Dalbit plans to invest $10 million in the coming years, according to a bourse disclosure. The company aims to launch 12 integrated (CNG) refueling stations and conversion centers for vehicles.


A CNG-powered passenger vehicle is estimated to emit about 25% less CO2. It is, on average, 50% cheaper than petrol cars. Based in Cairo, TAQA Arabia is a subsidiary of Qalaa Holdings. It serves over 1.7 million customers in 50 Egyptian cities with energy and utility services, including natural gas, electricity, renewable energy, petroleum products, and water.


The company also builds, runs, and maintains energy infrastructure, including gas transmission and distribution, in eight Egyptian governorates.
