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.
In the petition, we ask the Minister to address gaps in the Upstream General Regulations to foster national (local) content, fair competition, transparency and accountability in oil sector procurement processes.
Unless the gaps contained in the petition are addressed, the above principles of procurement and Uganda's aspirations of national content in the oil sector stand to be derailed.
