The policy recognizes the need to enhance the current institutional framework which was set up to facilitate the promotion and exploration for oil and gas.
The policy recommends setting up of the following three separate institutions:
A new petroleum legal framework - emplacement of a Resource Management Law, and a Revenue Management Law.
An efficient Resource Management system, through the creation of a sound Institutional Framework which separates Policy Setting and Business Promotion from Regulation of the Industry and Commercial Businesses.
Creation of a Directorate of Petroleum in the Ministry responsible for oil and gas; a Petroleum Authority of Uganda; and a National Oil Company.
Ensuring optimum national participation in oil and gas activities to cater for the local content.
Well liberalised economy,
Tax incentives on equipment,
Repatriation of income,
and regulatory framework.
