Uganda is still struggling with its massive oil find in the Albertine Basin, North west of the country since 2006 when Tullow Oil Plc made the massive discovery.
Analysts believe Uganda could have achieved production earlier but policies and disagreements between the government and the oil exploration company Tullow Oil Plc stalled the process.
Uganda’s production will now be based on the successful Kenyan development plan.
Tullow and its Partner Africa Oil, a Canadian oil and gas explorer intend to submit development plans for a massive heated pipeline to run from the oil fields in Lokichar in Turkana County to the Coast of Mombasa where there is a refinery and export hub.
Uganda will build a pipeline that will link with the Kenyan one and finally pump its 3.5 billion barrels to the market.
Tullow Oil Plc apologized to President Yoweri Museveni over alleged bribery claims.
The company has been embroiled in a tussle on proceeds and taxes related with the Albertine basin discovery in Uganda.
