Posted on February 17, 2012 at 9:03 3 Comments

On February 3, 2012, the media was awash with news of signing of new production sharing agreements (PSAs) between Tullow Oil and Government of Uganda.

The gusto and excitement that surrounded this signing is proof that Uganda’s nascent oil and gas sector will never be the same again. It should be noted that this is not Uganda’s first PSA; so, the euphoria surrounding this particular one speaks volumes and there is more to it than meets the eye.

A committee to study the President's wish led by Mr Amama Mbabazi was formed to expedite the wish.
