Career in oil and gas

Be a Part of Uganda’s Future!

Uganda, situated in the centre of Africa and on the shores of Lake Victoria, has been at the crossroads of trade and civilisations since the beginning of human history. While its economy was, until recently, focused on agricultural exports, a new massive economic sector has come to the spotlight in the early 2000’s, with the discovery of significant hydrocarbon deposits.

With proven oil reserves of 6.5 billion barrels, Uganda is set to become a major player in the industry. A huge pipeline, which will be completed by 2021, will facilitate transportation of Uganda’s vast oil reserves to one of Africa’s major shipping ports: Mombasa in Kenya.

Now that the foundation work has largely been laid out, this new industry represents an unprecedented opportunity for thousands of Ugandans and people from across the region. The hydrocarbon sector has moved away from the labour-intensive processes of the past to highly industrialised and automated operations, which require a highly specialised, trained workforce.

A specialised degree for the Oil and Gas industry will not only open up exciting career paths but will also allow you to join this exciting sector while it still at its infancy in Uganda, giving you the advantage of a fast–track career to top managerial and leadership roles in the industry.
