Oil Reserves to trigger jobs and infrastructure development in Uganda

(Financial Times)


After the discovery of large oil reserves in Uganda in 2006, the country is now taking steps to use oil to transform its economy. Global oil majors such as Tullow, Total and Cnooc are taking interest in the region for oil exploration, field development and production activities.


At full production, the oil fields are expected to produce up to 230,000 barrels a day. The oil development and infrastructure projects will create about 15,000 direct jobs, of which 60-70 per cent will be Ugandan. Including indirect employment, the projects are expected to generate about 150,000 jobs.


It is expected that a major of the services used by the oil industry, measured in monetary terms, are Ugandan such as catering, transport and security. In some technical areas, the country has virtually no capacity or experience and so regulations have been issued to waive the law in these areas.  Recruitment agencies would be hired to recruit highly experienced and skilled professionals for these jobs in Uganda.


These projects will create opportunities in Africa for Ugandans, provide energy supply and bring in revenue to fund infrastructure and other development projects. However, considering Uganda’s historic reputation for endemic corruption, analysts and activists are concerned and sceptical that everything will go smoothly.
