Museveni Reassures Ugandans on Oil Targets Amidst EU Parliament Resolution

posted onSeptember 16, 2022

President Yoweri Museveni has said Uganda will proceed with it's target of having her first oil out of the ground by 2025 despite a resolution by the European Parliament to interfere with the process.

In a message shared on his official social media channels, the Ugandan President said that if TotalEnergies and CNOOC decide to listen to the EU Parliament regarding stoppage of the process, Uganda will find other partners to work with.

Full statement

 The remarks of the Deputy Speaker and the Attorney General in one of the dailies concerning the EU Parliament and EACOP interested me in making some comments of reassurance to our people.

I want to assure you that the project shall proceed as stipulated in the contract we have with TotalEnergies and CNOOC.

We should remember that Total Energies convinced me about the Pipeline idea; if they choose to listen to the EU Parliament, we shall find someone else to work with.

Either way,  we shall have our oil coming out by 2025 as planned. So, the people of Uganda should not worry.
