A Bulk Procurement System (BPS) for petroleum products was introduced in 2012 where the Petroleum (Bulk Procurement) Regulations of 2011 allowed for bulk importation of petrol, diesel and kerosene. On 15th March 2013, the Regulations were revised to include Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) as additional products to be procured through the BPS.
Due to shortage of storage capacity, importation of LPG through BPS was stalled. Following an increase in storage capacity from 4,160 MT which was available in 2013 to 4,965 MT as at 31st August 2016, the Petroleum Bulk Procurement Agency (PBPA) prequalified suppliers for the supply of LPG through BPS for the year 2016 to December 2017.

The Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority (EWURA) has received concerns from stakeholders on two issues: (i) That TIPER fees paid by Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) for the use of TIPER’s manifold is not justifiable (ii) That charges and fees paid by Petroleum retailers to local authorities and executive agencies such as Weights and Measures Agency (WMA), Occupational Safety and Health Authority (OSHA), National Environmental Management Council (NEMC), Government Procurement Services Agency (GPSA) and Regional Fire Commissioners are not reflected in the pricing formula. Information to justify concerns on charges from various local authorities has been submitted by some Retailers through Tanzania Petrol Station Operators Association (TAPSOA).
EWURA has considered the concerns and analysed the submitted information thereof. Based on the analysis, the Authority is proposing a review of the Petroleum Products (Price Setting) Rules to reflect reasonable rate for TIPER fees and separately allocating fragmented costs for OMCs and Retailers for the payment of city levy and fees to local authorities and executive agencies. This review of the pricing formula will ensure that both OMCs and Retailers recover the prudently incurred costs. Please see attached files below for more details…
