State-owned Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) is set to start issuing invitations to tender next month for a variety of upstream-related work that includes offers to participate in exploration in the south and north of the country.

In early August, it plans to release bid documents to companies keen to partner TPDC in exploring the Mnazi Bay North and West Songo Songo licenses in the south of the country and Eyasi-Wembere in the north, where 150 kilometres of 2D seismic data needs to be acquired.
