22 glorious years in the domain of importing, distributing and marketing Petroleum Products across East and Central Africa-such are the credentials of OILCOM Tanzania Limited. The company came into existence on 26th July 1990 and since then, began a new chapter of success, service and excellence in the trade of Oil & Petroleum Products. Headquartered in Dar es Salaam, the main port and commercial capital of Tanzania, the company has taken huge strides towards expansion in neighboring countries of Malawi, Rwanda, Burundi, Zambia, Kenya, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Although, Oil & Petroleum Products are our forte, our ambit is not restricted to these products only. There are a host of services that we have been successfully rendering for past 22 years and, this is something that makes us very proud. We have set up in access of 80 high tech service stations for our retail customers. Our suite of services includes:
We have also introduced a wide range of Automotive and Industrial Lubricants that are approved by Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS).
There are two key reasons that have made us a big name in the trade of Oil & Petroleum Products- primarily, our main storage facility at Dar es Salaam harbour that enables storage of 76,000 cubic meters of oil and secondly, our depot at Kurasini Terminal that is equipped with all the necessary high tech machines and equipment for prompt, reliable and efficient handling and delivery of Petroleum Products. We handle thousands of metric tons of Oil & Petroleum Products every year, a big feat in itself. The strategic location of depot, close to the oil jetty, enables efficient back loading of products to marine tankers and onshore bunkering to other vessels at the port.
We have two other depots on the mainland that serve the fuel needs of the customers from western and central Tanzania, and in the landlocked countries of Rwanda, Burundi, and Eastern Congo. The depot in Kigoma, on the shore of Lake Tanganyika, has a capacity of 6,000 cubic meters. The second depot with a capacity of 6,500 cubic meters is located at Isaka in Shinyanga Region.
Besides, we maintain our own fleet of trucks and tankers for distribution of Petroleum Products all across Tanzania and other neighbouring countries.
