The international oil and gas industry will once again converge in September for the Ugandan government’s official annual conference for oil and gas development – the Uganda International Oil & Gas Summit (UIOGS).
Now in its third year, UIOGS will take place from the 27-28 September at the Kampala Serena Hotel, Uganda. Hosted again by H.E. Yoweri K Museveni alongside Hon. Minister Irene Muloni, and Dr Ernest Rubondo, UIOGS is 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.
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 stabilised government, numerous tax and financial breaks for investors, refinery underway, pipeline development and pound for pound one of the most cost effective option for oil extraction available, the Albertine Graben offers a real opportunity in a climate that requires nothing less than value for investment.
UIOGS 2017 will provide a timely meeting for policy makers, 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 on the roadmap to production.
Attracting global attention across the industry, last year’s annual event saw over 350 attendees, comprised of over 200 companies from across 32 different countries, proving once again, that Uganda’s cost efficient extraction, favourable tax benefits and stabilised government is exactly what investors, financiers and prospectors are looking for.
Speaking ahead of the 2017 event, Hon. Minister Irene Muloni, Minister for Energy and Minerals Uganda commented; “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.”
She added; “We have much to look forward to in 2017 as Uganda continues with preparations towards commercial oil production involving development of the refinery and crude export pipeline. At the 3rd UIOGS there will be many important issues to address so we call on all our partners and investors to actively participate.”
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 official and largest oil and gas summit.
