    Programme for the Road Show for Uganda’s First Licensing Round for Petroleum Exploration

    The Government of Uganda through the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development has opened up six blocks in the Albertine Graben for licensing in the first competitive bidding round. Following the issuance of a Request for Qualification (RFQ) inviting interested firms and/or consortia to submit Statements of Qualifications, the Ministry continues to encourage more firms to participate in the upcoming licensing round.

    Hon. Eng. Irene Muloni, the Minister for Energy and Mineral Development is pleased to invite your company to attend a licensing round roadshow which will be held at the Montcalm Shoreditch London Tech City Hotel on 17th June 2015 starting from 9:00am to 4:00 pm. Come listen in to the Minister and her delegation of distinguished speakers from the Government of Uganda as they elaborate the petroleum prospectivity of the available blocks. 

    Eng. Irene Muloni announced Uganda’s first licensing round during February 2015.  The six blocks on offer are; Ngassa (410 Km2) in Hoima District, Taitai & Karuka (565 Km2) in Buliisa District, Ngaji (895 Km2), Rukungiri & Kanungu Districts, Mvule (344 Km2) in Moyo and Yumbe Districts together with Turaco (425 Km2) and Kanywantaba (344 Km2) in Ntoroko District. These blocks have both seismic and well data which were acquired by oil companies previously licensed in these areas. Stratigraphic Licensing will be applicable to some of these blocks.

    Uganda’s first licensing round is guided by the National Oil and Gas Policy for Uganda (2008) and the Petroleum (Exploration, Development and Production) Act 2013.  Below is the programme for the roadshow
