China’s CNOOC says Oil production in Uganda is likely to start in 2021 at the earliest, a later date than the government’s 2020 target.
CNOOC, which is developing the fields in the west of the country with Britain’s Tullow Oil and France’s Total, is aiming for a final investment decision this year so development can start according to officials.
Initial field development would include constructing central processing facilities and feeder pipeline networks.
Uganda still needs to secure investment decisions for building a refinery and a pipeline for export, which need to be in place for production to begin.
