Statoil has announced a new natural gas discovery offshore Tanzania.

It is the Norwegian energy firm’s eight discovery and includes up to 1.8 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of gas in the Mdalasini-1 well.

That takes the total volumes of gas to around 22 tcf in Block 2.

Nick Maden, Senior Vice President for Statoil’s exploration activities in the Western Hemisphere said: “The Mdalasini-1 discovery marks the completion of the first phase of an efficient and successful multi-well exploration programme offshore Tanzania.”

Statoil operates the licence on Block 2 on behalf of Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC) and has a 65% working interest.
