KAMPALA: Uganda will auction 13 blocks for oil and gas exploration when the country's president signs a new bill governing the petroleum sector into law, its junior energy minister said on Wednesday.
"We are waiting for a Presidential assent to that law and then we will be ready to advertise for a new licensing round. We have 13 blocks that are currently not licensed which prospective bidders can apply for," Peter Lokeris told Reuters.
