The National Oil and Gas Policy for Uganda, 2008

The National Oil and Gas Policy supersedes the Energy Policy for Uganda published in 2002 in matters of exploration, development, production, and utilization of the country’s oil and gas resources. Apart from creating a conducive environment for petroleum exploration to continue in the country and the anticipated development, production and utilization of any discovered resources to take place, the policy also seeks to put in place a framework for the efficient management of the oil and gas resources as well as revenues accruing therefrom.
