9 OTHER REGULATORY TOOLS USED 2.2 Other Practical Tools used to Regulate the Petroleum Upstream SectorAssessment of Technical Submissions: Review of Field Development Plans; Well proposals, drilling programs, seismic survey plans, among others.Monitoring of Costs of Petroleum Operations and Review of Work Programs and Budgets.Monitoring Field Activities on a full time basis and holding regular operational meeting between Government and the licensed companies.Monitoring Compliance of the Licensees; to the Laws, Regulations, PSAs and other regulatory instruments through a License Management System.Documenting and categorising the country’s petroleum resources.Management of Petroleum Data.Guidelines to support these tools have and continued to be developed.
10 3. PLANS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT 3.1 Refinery DevelopmentUganda’s petroleum products consumption during 2012 was 27,000 bbl/dayRegional consumption is about 200,000 bbl/day with a growth rate of 7%.Region has only one refinery with a capacity of 70,000 bbl/day but has been operating at half capacity.Reduced security of supply and high import bill of about 1 billion USD annually.The EAC strategy for development of regional refineries was adopted by Partner States in It recommended a refinery should be developed in Uganda.Refinery Distribution in Africa (Source: CITAC)
11 PLANS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT (2) Refinery Development; ProgressMedium-large refineryFeasibility study for the development of a green field refinery in Uganda confirmed that developing a refinery in Uganda was profitable.Government procured a Transaction Advisor (Taylor DeJongh from USA) to support structuring of the refinery development and source a lead investor.Refinery to be developed on a Private – Public Partnership (PPP) basisRFQ issued in October 2013 and six firms and/or consortia have been shortlisted. The Ministry issued a detailed RFP during January 2014 to the six bidders:Consortium led by China Petroleum Pipeline BureauMARUBENI Corporation (Japan);Consortium led by PETROFAC (UK/UAE);Consortium led by RT – Global Resources (Russia);Consortium led by SK Energy (Korea); andConsortium led by VITOL (Switzerland).Lead investor to be procured by June 2014 and the first phase of the refinery (30k bopd) expected in 2017/18.
12 PLANS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT Refinery Development; Land AcquisitionMedium-large refineryProcesses of acquiring land in Kabaale, Buseruka Subcounty, Hoima for refinery development is on- going;Survey of the land was undertaken by the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Devt.Sensitisation of affected communities and undertaking a Resettlement Action Plan in 2012RAP approved and implementation commenced in July 2013 with verification, disclosure of compensation values, livelihood improvement and financial management training and identification of resettlement areas.Payment of compensation packages commenced in December 2013 and will be concluded in the first half of 2014 as sensitisation continuesEnvironment baseline survey has been completed

15 PLANS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT PIPELINES AND TRANSPORTATION FACILITIESA study to evaluate development of pipelines and storage facilities for crude oil and gas in Uganda has been concluded; Two routes; Northern and Southern to a central hub/refineryPlans are underway to develop a 205km refined products pipeline from the Refinery to Buloba, west of Kampala where a terminal is planned.Roads, water, electricity and other infrastructure in the Albertine Graben are being upgraded.Refined products pipelineRefineryREFINERY
16 PLANS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT PIPELINE DEVELOPMENT1. Crude Transportation Pipeline to refineryThe study to evaluate development of pipelines and storage facilities was completed in 2012;Two routes (Northern and Southern) to a central hub/Refinery were identifiedNorthern route: 97km, 16-inch and,Southern route: 46km, 12.5 inchCost of pipelines estimated at $185M
17 PLANS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT 2. Crude Export PipelineThree possible routes were evaluatedNorthern route to Lamu Port in Kenya, 1380km longCentral route to Mombasa, 1300km longSouthern route to Dar es Salam, 1950km longThe actual sizing of pipeline and detailed routing to be completed with a view of regional infrastructure development once commercialization plans are finalized
18 NATIONAL PARTICIPATION Government strongly encourages National Participation as one of the optimum ways to ensure sustainable development through:Partnering with the Ugandan investors,Use of local goods and services andContribution to development of skills and expertise through employment and training in line with the industry quality and safety standards.This is important because sustainable development ultimately requires that a country’s citizens are part and parcel of the development process.
19 Strategies to ensure National Participation Regulation of inflow of expatriates; expatriate workers must acquire work permits.Requirement to develop Nationalisation Plans for expatriate positionsApproval of organisation structures for oil companiesStreamlining the procurement procedures for oil companiesProduction Sharing Agreements (PSAs) provide for State Participation in the range of 15% to 20%Several aspects of national participation have been included in the new petroleum legislation.Capacity Building and Skills DevelopmentMinistry is developing a National Content Policy
20 NATIONAL PARTICIPATION NATIONAL ENTREPRENEURSNational Entrepreneurs are actively involved in provision of services in the sector in the following areas;Civil Works and Engineering,Medical Services,Clearing and Forwarding,Environment Services (Consultancy and Waste Handling).Security,Catering and Camp ManagementFreight Forwarders/Courier servicesRig Services( Movement and Mud logging)Office Facilities and EquipmentEquipment lifting servicesEngineering servicesCommunications and ICT
21 NATIONAL PARTICIPATION EMPLOYMENT BY OIL COMPANIESLicensed companies in the country are employing an increasing number of UgandansTullow employed a total of people in 2013, out of which 80% are UgandansCNOOC plans to employee people in 2014 out of which 70% are UgandansTotal employs over 500 people out of which 80% are UgandansThese numbers are expected to increase as more Ugandans acquire skills in the oil and gas sector.Hundreds of semi-skilled and unskilled workers are employed from the local communities during operations
22 NATIONAL PARTICIPATION INTERNATIONAL OIL SERVICES COMPANIESSome of the world’s largest oil service companies are now resident and have opened up bases and yards in the country;Schlumberger; US$79.57 billionHalliburton; US$24.64 billionBaker Hughes; US$16.74 billionWeatherford; US$8.91 billionThese service companies are also providing training and employment opportunities to Ugandans
23 5. COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION EmploymentMajority of these jobs will be through indirect employment.Employment curve for the oil and gas industry is such that employment increases during the development stage where a lot of infrastructure is put in place.Acquisition of certified vocational skills is therefore important as these stage will require artisanal and technical skills.As the activities progress towards actual production, more highly skilled labour is required and high technology utilized, with less man-hours.Emphasis for communities therefore is to focus on employment but also service provision.Causal labour sourced from the local community and provide opportunity to build skillsHundreds of semi-skilled and unskilled workers are employed from the local communities during operationsNewly recruited workers undergoing survey training by BGP personnel in preparation for the 3D data acquisition
24 6. WAY FORWARDDevelopment of regulations to support the new upstream and midstream Acts; to be in place during 2014.Preparations for Licensing through competitive bidding rounds starting with areas with good data coverage is going onThe Ministry will undertake speculative surveys in the unlicensed areas to inform the fiscal terms.Establishment of the Petroleum Authority and National Oil Company await appointment of the board by the President. The board will be approved by Parliament.National Content Policy to be developed through a consultative process.Procurement of a lead investor for the refinery to be concluded in the first half ofDevelopment of a National Strategic Plan for Pipelines development has commenced.Development of an implementation plan for the Strategic Environment Assessment will follow its adoption by Cabinet.Continue with implementation of the communication strategy for the oil and gas sectorImplementation of the Monitoring and Evaluation Framework for the NOGPMedium-large refinery
25 7. CONCLUDING REMARKSUganda’s oil and gas sector is taking shape, the regulatory for the upstream sector has been finalized, institutional framework is being put in place to manage the resources and the infrastructure to support the development is being built.Taking forward the sector will require joint and harmonized efforts on the part of the respective stakeholders.The Ministry of Energy ad Mineral Development recognizes and appreciates the support by other Government Institutions, Oil Companies, Development partners, Civil Society and other stakeholders in the implementation of the different aspects of the National Oil and Gas Policy for Uganda.
