Uganda: Bid round planned as pipeline, refinery plans take shape
Uganda plans to launch a second licensing round in May, offering relinquished areas and new acreage, notably in Lake Albert. Energy minister Irene Muloni told a press briefing during Africa Oil Week in Cape Town a technical team was working on demarcating the blocks in preparation for a launch at the East African Petroleum Conference in Mombasa in May. The blocks on offer will vary in size from 600km2 to 1,200km2, Muloni said. All have some 2D data, and some have 3D and well data.
