Uganda Fuel Deport in Jinja to be reopened

Monday, 5th September, 2011

The Uganda fuel storage facility at Jinja is expected to be operational by the end of the year, Rev. Frank Tukwasibwe, the commissioner of petroleum standards, has said.

Tukwasibwe said the Uganda energy ministry was sourcing for a contract to refurbish, restock, operate and manage the depot.

He said the Government decided to look for a private firm to run the facility because it was making losses and the budget to run it was not enough.

Tukwasibwe was speaking during a stakeholders’ meeting at the Imperial Royale Hotel in Kampala last week.

The facility, which is run by the energy ministry, is used for storage of Government strategic reserves and by private companies at a fee.

It is composed of three tanks, one for diesel, another for petrol and the third for kerosene. Each them has a capacity of 10 million litres.

New fire fighting equipment was installed in 2002 at the factory. Tukwasibwe said the private operator would run the facility on a 10-year concession deal.
