The Government of the Republic of Uganda (GoU) is inviting statements of qualification (SOQ) from appropriately qualified firms/consortia to lead and invest in the development of a greenfield oil refinery, with a capacity of 60,000 BPD in Uganda, and the associated downstream infrastructure (the Project). The Project will be owned by the selected firm/consortium and the GoU in a 60:40 partnership.
The Project will serve a large and growing market for petroleum products in East Africa with opportunities for significant risk-adjusted returns. Crude supply will be sourced from the consortium of upstream producers, comprising CNOOC, Total SA, Tullow Oil and the Government of Uganda.
One of the objectives of the National Oil and Gas Policy for Uganda is to refine the oil resources discovered in the country.
The GoU has appointed Taylor-DeJongh, as transaction advisor, to manage the international competitive tender and to advise the GoU on the selection and appointment of the firm/consortium.
Request for the RFQ document and related queries can be directed to Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development, P.O. Box 7270 Kampala. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submission deadline is 8 November 2013.
