    [h=1]Uganda Wants to Keep 40% Stake in Oil Refinery[/h] Published July 20, 2012
    Dow Jones Newswires

    KAMPALA Uganda--The Ugandan government wants to retain a 40% stake in the proposed oil refinery project in the country's Lake Albertine rift basin, where companies are currently developing oil fields containing as much as 2.5 billion barrels of oil, Uganda's junior energy and minerals minister told Dow Jones Newswires Friday.
    The oil refinery, which is expected to cost up to 5 billion dollars, will be developed under a public-private partnership and is billed as the country's largest ever infrastructure project, Peter Lokeris said in an interview.
    "We are negotiating with prospective investors, and by around August we will select the most serious companies and ask them to submit bids," Mr. Lokeris said, who added that the bid evaluation will be fast tracked to ensure that the contract is issued to allow commencement of construction works early 2013.
    The refinery will be developed in a phased manner, starting with around 20,000 barrels-a-day capacity in the initial 2-3 years, before ramping up to 120,000 barrels-a-day by around 2017, Mr. Lokeris said.
    Among the companies that have expressed interest include France's Total SA (TOT), China's Cnooc Ltd. (CEO) and China National Petroleum Corp. Company officials could not be reached for an immediate comment.
    The initial phase of the refinery is expected to supply refined petroleum products to the local market, before exporting to the regional East African market. However, analysts say that since Uganda cannot consume 120,000 barrels-a-day of oil, it may not be viable to build a larger refinery, whose products cannot be sold on the local market.
    Also, earlier this year, U.K.-based Tullow Oil PLC (TLW.LN), which operates Uganda's block 2, said a refinery with a capacity above 60,000 barrels-a-day would not be viable. Tullow favors the construction of a 1,300-kilometer pipeline to transport crude for export, through the Kenyan port of Mombasa.
    However, according to Mr. Lokeris, the Ugandan government is in talks with members of the East African Community--a regional intergovernmental organization incorporating Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi--to cede at least 10% of the stake to entice them to buy Ugandan refined petroleum products, and provide some financing.
    "We are ready to cede 10% stake to the East African Community provided they contribute to the funding of the project," Mr. Lokeris said.
    Tullow, Total and Cnooc are currently implementing investment projects worth $10 billion to develop oil fields in Uganda's Lake Albertine rift basin.
    And earlier this week, the Uganda government issued tenders for paving at least 1,180 miles of roads in the next three years in a bid to support the "primary growth" of the country's agriculture, tourism and oil sectors, the state-run Uganda National Roads Authority said.
    According to tender documents, the government intends to procure contractors with the capability to organize funding for the various road projects to link the country's resource-rich but remote regions.
    Uganda is expected to produce as much as 200,000 barrels of oil a day by 2016-17.

    Kenya wame-sign mkataba na kampuni ya mafuta ya Italy ENI, na kwenye mgawanyo wa faida serikali ya Kenya itapata 78% na huyo ENI 22%.

    Kuna jambo ambalo si zuri hata kidogo. Kila kukicha mabosi wa makampuni makubwa wanatembelea Ikulu. Sijaelewa ni kwanini karibu CEO wa makampuni makubwa wanakuwa na meeting na uongozi wa juu? Hawa wa chini wanakuwa na uhuru gani wa exercise their professional judgement kwenye sekta zao baada ya mikutano ya magogoni?

    Umesahau yule tapeli wa Kinigeria aliyepiga picha na Pinda eti naye anataka kuwekeza kwenye kiwanda cha sementi bongo? Hivi unaweza imagine mwekezaji wa kigeni kupiga picha na Obama eti kawekeza Marekani? Our leaders are selling us real cheap.

    siku tutakapoamka ni pale tutakapoambiwa hii nchi yote ni vitalu vya uwekezaji vya wageni hivyo tuhamie nchi za jirani. I always ask myself, mission ya jk ni kuwa kama omar bongo au gnasibe? Maana kila uovu unaofanyika siku hizi ukigundulika na wa chini ikulu inatoa baraka za uovu kuendelea.

    Wewe huna habari kwamba kiasi cha mafuta kilichogundulika Kenya ni zaidi ya mafuta yalioko Angola?

    Soma hapa kisha fuata link kisha unambie ulichojifunza

    The estimates provided by Tullow's Exploration Director Angus McCoss is 10 billion barrels in the Turkana Basin alone. They have identified over 100 leads and are mobilizing more rigs to drill in the area. So that means in one basin alone Kenya potentially has more oil than Angola! This news is astounding and the reason why Tullow oil stock has been on the move!

    Read...More Drilling In Store For Kenya

    7 more blocks were dished out last week and there is a scramble for blocks! Total was awarded block L22 last week, Italy's ENI, Rig Energy Corp among others were part of the entrants last week. Tullow is alslo set to drill in Nyakach and Kericho. Great news indeed and we look forward to seeing the full potential of the resources.


    The Anza, the Mochesa and the Lamu basins have not been scratched yet and these are the most sought after blocks in the region!

    [h=1]New gas discoveries push reserve estimates in Tanzania[/h] Jun 20, 2012 12:00 AM

    Major new natural gas discoveries in Tanzania have pushed the reserve estimates up to 28.7 tcf from 10 tcf, Tanzania's deputy energy and minerals minister said. These latest finds in the country's deep-water gas blocks are attracting new interest from a host of international oil companies especially as the bulk of the country's offshore and onshore gas and oil blocks are yet to be explored, Stephen Masele said.
    "We are encouraging companies to maintain the current momentum in the gas and oil exploration sector," he said.

    Earlier this month, the discovery of around 3 tcf of gas reserves in block 2 by Norwegian oil company Statoil and US based ExxonMobil, has cut the risk. Tanzania, which is slowly becoming a regional gas hub after a flurry of discoveries, has around a dozen deepsea blocks that are yet to be explored due to disputes over revenue sharing with the semi-autonomous archipelago of Zanzibar.
    The US Geological Survey estimates that East Africa's coastal region holds up to 441 tcf of natural gas.

    Tanzania is also trying to boost power generation at gas-fired thermal plants as it seeks to wean its electricity sector away from unreliable hydro power generation as well as the expensive diesel-fired thermal plants. In January, the state power utility raised electricity tariffs by at least 40 % citing higher generation costs due to the acquisition of emergency diesel-fired thermal plants.
    The increase mainly affected gold miners and other large industrial power consumers.

    Currently, Tanzania uses around 200 mm cf of gas a day to run thermal plants, plans are underway to double gas production by the end of 2013, according to Mr Masele.
    Other oil and gas exploration companies operating in Tanzania include Canada's Orca Exploration Group, Australia's Beach Energy, France's Total E&P Activities Petrolieres and London-listed Aminex.

    Absolutely Gas and Petroleum revenue tax, must be charged at a rate of 50%
    on the field-based profit. Because their is corporation tax must be charged at a
    rate of 30%. Also their is supplementary of 20% making the overall tax rate 50%
    If Tanzania Government are taking 30% it means are loose 20% from the Gas revenue
    tax every year. And how, this is a plan of Ccm Government and their complish to stole
    our money. I am mean corruption is standing there, for getting only 10% and put on in
    their pockets. And the rest 10% remains to their complish. As i know extraction on the fields
    given and development cost 100% from the investor's, first year basis with an uplift 35%
    for field investment costs prior to field payback. And the following year investor's must
    to pay revenue tax almost 50%. So for all that past years where our 20% gone?
