Welcoming over 360 attendees from across 125 national and international companies, UIOGS 2017 once again firmly underlined its position as the must-attend meeting for all stakeholders in East Africa
Hosted by President Yoweri K Museveni alongside Hon. Eng. Minister Irene Muloni, and Dr Ernest Rubondo, UIOGS 2017 was held under the auspices of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development, Uganda with the support of the Uganda National Oil Company and Petroleum Authority Uganda.
The programme examined the future of oil and gas exploration and production in Uganda, setting out the government’s vision and implementation for sustainable, long term development and bringing them together with potential private sector partners and other stakeholders, to share announcements and successes and discuss any hurdles that have been encountered.
Proceedings were led by a keynote and welcoming address delivered by Gen. Moses Ali, First Deputy Prime Minister and Deputy Leader of Government Business in Parliament on behalf of President Museveni, who also participated on a ministerial panel alongside Hon. Eng. Irene Muloni, Minister of Energy and Minerals Development of Uganda, H.E. Gabriel Lima, Minister of Mines and Hydrocarbons, Equatorial Guinea and Amb. Julius B. Onen, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Trade, Industry and Cooperatives, Uganda, directly engaging with a record number of oil and gas industry leaders from throughout the world.
Returning to the Serena Hotel 19-20th September 2018, the fourth Uganda International Oil & Gas Summit will once again examine the industry’s developments and successes, whilst looking towards the challenges and next steps on the roadmap to 2020 production.
As development plans march ahead for oil production by 2020, Uganda has become more and more attractive, offering a lower risk than similar sites across the globe. With a stablised government, numerous tax and financial breaks for investers, the refinery underway, pipeline development and pound for pound one of the most cost effecive options for oil extraction available, the Albertine Graben offers a real opportunity.
Join hundreds of prospecting oil majors, the ministry, national oil companies, service providers, contractors, investors, financial services, indigenous companies, law firms and every stop along the value chain, for Uganda's offical and largest oil and gas summit.
"Following the undoubted success of the last two Summits in attracting international investors from around the world, UIOGS has become a major business platform for oil and gas in Uganda where all the decision makers for the region are united for three days' high level discussions and networking."
Hon. Eng. Irene Muloni, Minister for Energy & Mineral Development
‘Gatherings of this kind are among many ways of promoting the country’s potential and showcasing investment opportunities not only in the oil and gas sector, but also other sectors.’
