Is Uganda Ready for First Oil?

Ugandan industry experts Pamela Natamba (Partner and Head, Oil & Gas at PricewaterhouseCoopers Uganda) and Tony Otoa (Chief Executive at Stanbic Business Incubator Ltd) speaks to Brenda about Uganda’s readiness for First Oil, in light of the recent signing of some of the agreements for the East African crude oil pipeline.

The discussion is quite expansive; ranging from how ready the Ugandan government players and Uganda’s service sector are to how Ugandan businesses can position themselves to take advantage of the sector.  Tony and Pamela also discuss the commercial viability of the tariff to transport crude through the pipeline and fiscal responsibility for oil revenues.
