The Strategic Conference

The 6th UIOGS strategic conference programme has been developed in close consultation with the ministry of energy and mineral development

The Ministry's guidance ensures the programme's clarity in addressing the most important issues for Uganda and all its stakeholders across the value chain with an interest in the future of oil and gas exploration and production in the region

Across two days, speakers and delegates will have the opportunity to participate virtually within business, technical and special focus sessions, providing critical insights into the region's oil and gas sector.

The conference will discuss and debate the future of oil and gas exploration and production in Uganda.

A timely meeting for policymakers, global investors, oil and gas companies, lawyers, consultants and other stakeholders to find out more about the state of exploration and production as it is now and what challenges and opportunities lie ahead. The agenda is developed with consultation from all major stakeholders to ensure its value and relevance to everyone interested in Uganda

This year has the potential to be transformative for Uganda and the programme will be centred around the five main cornerstones:

  • Prospectivity and the latest licensing round. With more than 6 billion barrels of oil in place and low production costs what are the real prospects and expectations for Uganda’s oil industry over the next five years?

  • Given the very considerable investment and huge number of related projects; how can Uganda develop its local expertise and enable Ugandan companies to win tenders?

  • With a $40-$45 barrel what are the latest technologies and services that international companies can bring to Uganda to ensure low cost, high value production?

  • Uganda has major infrastructure projects including the refinery and the 1,600 kilometre pipeline, how will Uganda protect its heritage whilst creating an industry that provides 1000s of jobs?

  • What are the financial models in place to support Uganda’s nascent oil industry and what can the banks do to help the drive towards commercial production?
