That Uganda has encountered an eighty five percent (85%) success rate in its oil exploration venture and in the process confirming commercial discoveries of up to 6.5 billion barrels of which 1.4 – 1.7 billion barrels are estimated to be recoverable, is not news anymore. Neither is the projection that these discoveries will be responsible for at least over $8bn in investments into the country over the next three years, which should create up to 160,000 jobs to be created. To adequately put this kind of investment to use however, a lot has to be in place for Uganda. Whereas, many involve human resource skilling and infrastructure developments, stakeholder deliberations are also a key part of the process, as they are very important in shaping its course. One such industry platform is the annual Oil & Gas Convention spearheaded by Uganda Chamber of Mines and Petroleum (UCMP) to promote developments in the Oil & Gas sector. Running under the theme “Oil & Gas Doors Open in Uganda”, the 2017 convention will bring together industry stakeholders to focus on the practical approaches needed to take full advantage of the numerous opportunities that are about to be opened in Uganda.
