Linkages between the Oil and Gas and other Sectors of Uganda’s Economy; Opportunities and Challenges

The planned oil and gas activities provide an opportunity for economic growth for the country through participation of Ugandans and Ugandan Enterprises.  Uganda’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is approximately US$ 29.5billion growing at an estimated 6.1% (FY 2018/19). According to Uganda’s Vision 2040, development of the country’s oil and gas resources is deemed crucial in spurring economic growth and development. Experience has shown that development of the oil and gas industry can create an enclave economy if its development is not integrated within the wider economy.

Harnessing the linkages between oil and gas and other sectors of the economy is therefore key for broad based, inclusive economic development. Defining and creating these linkages is therefore very critical for the growth and sustainability of Uganda’s economy.

The PAU Newsletter Volume 1, Issue 1, November 2020

In this inaugural edition, we explore several issues that coincide with current status of the oil and gas sector in Uganda and the globe. Negotiations between Government and the oil companies, though sometimes protracted, are the norm; find out why they are necessary. The end goal is to ensure the sector creates lasting value.

The Energy Transition continues to raise contention as to the relevance of oil as a commodity. Whereas the much-needed transition is a reality, oil plays a significant role more so in developing countries. In this and subsequent issues we will also tackle some of our regulatory functions. This time round we look at the economics of the industry, specifically the volatile nature of oil prices.

The PAU Newsletter brings you a lot more information including highlights of the oil industry news. Despite the impact of the ongoing worldwide Corona Virus Disease pandemic, the oil and gas Industry remains vibrant.

We welcome your feedback and encourage your contribution via corporateaffairs@pau.go.ug as we journey on to fulfill our mission of ensuring the petroleum sector creates lasting value and contributing to Uganda being a sound investment destination.
