HISTORY OF PETROLEUM EXPLORATION
1980 to Date: CONSISTENT AND MODERN EFFORTS
Aero magnetic survey carried out in 1980.
Petroleum Law enacted in 1985.
Intensive promotion led to attraction of investment
The first seismic data was acquired in the country
1998 by Heritage Oil and Gas in Semliki Basin
In 2002, the Second deep well, Turaco-1 was
drilled in the country since 1938
First Commercial discovery of crude oil in 2006
Further discoveries of new oil and gas made
Drilling of the Turaco-1 well

The Albertine Graben is subdivided into
17 Licence Areas
Five (5) Active Production Sharing
Agreements (PSAs)
4 License Operators (Tullow, Total,
CNOOC and Dominion)
Licensing is currently on halt awaiting
completion of a new regulatory
framework for the sector.
Future Licensing to be undertaken
through competitive bidding
Licensees in the country changing from
small to major oil companies.

This resource base now put Uganda in the league of countries like Peru,
Trinidad and Tobago, Denmark, Italy and Romania
Chad, Congo Brazaville, Equatorial Guinea and Tunisia in Africa
Brunei and Thailand in Asia; among others
It is also still a long way from the tens of billion in Nigeria, Libya and the

20
INVESTMENTS MADE
Industry is capital intensive and high risk
At the end of 2011 the investment made mainly in risk capital invested in seismic
surveys, exploratory and appraisal drilling was over $1.3 billion
Sharp increase in investment at first discovery
This is significant investment and will rise to many fold with further investments
expected in field development, production of the crude oil, processing and
transportation facilities
The costs incurred in the sector in the country so far are classified as Finding
Costs
Means the costs of finding commercial reserves of oil in USD per barrel
On the global scale, the finding costs range between $5 - $25 per barrel

Concessions / Royalty/Tax Agreements
Company acquires a right to explore and develop hydrocarbons at its sole risk and
agrees to pay royalties, income taxes, petroleum revenue taxes etc in accordance
with the laws and regulations of the host govt.
The govt grants title to resource rights to the concessionaire company has all the
control on production rates and marketing (pricing and lifting).

The National Oil and Gas Policy (NOGP) is the
key document providing guidance to the Oil and
gas sector in Uganda.

It was developed to address issues of
exploration, development, production and
utilisation of the countrys oil resources following
the discovery of commercial oil reserves in 2006.

NOGP was approved by cabinet in January 2008
after a thorough consultative process.

Key Policy objectives for the oil and gas sector before the National Oil and Gas
Policy for Uganda were covered in the Energy Policy of 2002 and these were;

1.Capacity building and institutional development,

2. Investment promotion through acquisition of field geological, geophysical and
geochemical data and attraction of oil companies to invest; and

3. Monitoring compliance of agreed work programs, budgets and environment
protection.

The discovery and confirmation of commercial reserves of petroleum in the country
brought about new issues that necessitated putting in place a NATIONAL OIL AND
GAS POLICY for the country.

A Regional Refineries Development
Strategy (RRDS) was developed and
approved in 2008 by EAC member
states
The strategy aims at:
Harmonized planning and
development of refineries in the East
African Community
Sustainable utilisation of crude oil
resources in the region.
EAC has only one refinery of 70,000
bbl/d but operates at 35,000bbl/d.
The region is currently consuming
close to 200,000 bbl/d and demand is
growing

A detailed refinery feasibility study for the

conducted in 2010/11 and assessed;
Crude production potential
National and Regional Petroleum Product
Demand
Refinery size and configuration
Location
Financing options
The study analysed the option of crude export pipeline
verses refinery development
Study confirmed that refinery development is more
economically feasible and beneficial than export of crude oil
Six different locations were assessed and Kabaale (29Km
2
),
close to the oil fields in Hoima district was recommended
based on the waxy crude type that is difficult to transport
over long distances

Appreciate the progress and achievements that have been made in the sector.

Oil and Gas Industry Characteristics (High Risk Industry, High Reward, Capital intensive, International
and has potential to disrupt other sectors and can also be easily disrupted) require responsible media to
avoid disruption of the sector and contribute to managing expectations.

Be proactive in reporting about the oil and gas sector and ensure objective coverage of the sector.

Seek the correct information from the right sources to avoid misrepresentations based on selfish
interests; Get the right mix between political debates and expert information; there is tendency to rely
more on politicians than experts for media stories.

Network with key actors in the sector and obtain information with them to the extent that does not offend
your professionalism in order to deploy reporters optimally and for key tasks. Key actors include MEMD,
Finance, Parliament, Oil companies, NEMA, UWA, URA etc.

Find space and airtime in your channels for the sector, even when there are no "fireworks" around the
sector to give people information. Oil stories make interesting reading/listening.

Work closely with the MEMD and PEPD Communications Office to ensure information flow.

CONCLUDING REMARKS (1)
58
The intensive promotional and exploration efforts to establish Ugandas petroleum potential were
successful as commercially exploitable reserves of oil and gas were confirmed in the country.
Investment in the sector was over US$1.3 billion at the end of 2011 and the resources discovered
in the country to date are now estimated to be about 3.5 billion barrels of oil in place.
Given the drilling success rate and cost of finding oil in the country so far the exploration effort has
been efficient.
Efforts are now being made to commercialize the discovered resources, initially through power
generation and subsequently through refining of the crude oil
Investment in the sector is expected to increase especially as preparation of the infrastructure
required for production is put in place.
Employment opportunities for Ugandans in the oil and gas sector will increase as the country
progresses into field development and production

Concluding Remarks (2)
59
The key challenges in the sector include the general publics anxiety and
expectation and the need to put in place an appropriate institutional and
regulatory framework for the sector.
These and other challenges in the sector are well identified and described in
the countrys oil and gas policy and therefore implementation of this policy
should go along way in addressing these challenges.
