Uganda's estimated oil wealth has increased from 3.5 billion to 6.5 billion barrels,following new discoveries. || 80% of the land in Uganda is tilled by Women but they own less than 10% of it. || The Albertine grabben, where most of Uganda's oil is found, is also one of the most ecologically diverse regions in Africa.

We, Africa Institute for Energy Governance (AFIEGO), the Guild Presidents Forum on Oil Governance (GPFOG) and the Oil Refinery Residents Association (ORRA) wish to appreciate government’s issuance of production licenses to Tullow Oil and Total E&P. We congratulate the companies for having successfully undergone the rigorous process required in order to be issued with production licenses. The issuance of the licenses on August 30, 2016 is an important milestone and brings Uganda closer to first oil. How Ugandans have waited for this day.
