The Tanzania Uganda Oil & Gas Symposium

A major challenge that private sector actors within the oil and gas industry face, is limited awareness about the opportunities and areas of partnership that are available, in addition to knowledge gaps about the legal and regulatory regime, and poor coordination between and among public and private sector actors. This limits their ability to plan strategically, even when they are able to overcome financial and human resource challenges, to contribute to local content.

The TUOG Symposium will provide a platform for the private sector to network, understand industry opportunities and challenges, showcase their capacities through experience-sharing, and interact with public sector actors on legal and policy matters that govern the industry, in Uganda and Tanzania. Discussions will focus on ongoing activities with EACOP and other oil and gas projects, and how to unlock national participation and local content as a means to wealth creation for our peoples, and sustainable economic development for our countries.


  1. To provide a platform for networking, learning and sharing experiences and opportunities within the oil & gas industry projects
  2. To identify key strategies that can enable partnerships and joint ventures between Ugandan and Tanzania private sector actors
  3. To facilitate public-private sector dialogue on issues that affect the implementation of local content in the oil & gas industry projects
