Uganda

As early as 2025, a group of Integrated Oil Companies (IOC) will start oil production in the Lake Albert region of Uganda.


The economic benefits from this activity will be enormous for the Ugandan people and other stakeholders and participants. However, according to reliable industry sources, one less desirable byproduct will be the release of 900,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide gas to the atmosphere each year for the next 30 years. And these emissions don't just start with the production of oil – they began and will increase rapidly during the construction activity up to 2025.
