Welcome to the 3rd Uganda International Oil & Gas Summit

The international oil and gas industry is once again set to converge for the Ugandan government’s official annual conference for oil and gas development – the Uganda International Oil & Gas Summit (UIOGS).

Now in its third year, UIOGS will take place 27-28 September at the Kampala Serena Hotel, Uganda. Hosted again by H.E. Yoweri K Museveni alongside Hon. Minister Irene Muloni, and Dr Ernest Rubondo, UIOGS 2017 is held under the auspices of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development, Uganda with the support of the Uganda National Oil Company and Petroleum Authority Uganda.

The programme for UIOGS 2017 will discuss and debate the future of oil and gas exploration and production in the region. A timely meeting for policy makers, global investors, oil and gas companies, lawyers, consultants and other stakeholders to find out more about the state of exploration and production as it is now and what challenges and opportunities lie ahead.

UIOGS is Uganda’s official event and the Ministry of Energy & Mineral Development will be using this platform to actively engage with all our partners and suppliers from around the world.
