Tullow Oil, CNOOC Limited and Total Exploration & Production presented a joint development plan concept for the Lake Albert Rift Basin to President Yoweri Museveni and the Government of Uganda in July 2012.

“A Committee has now been set up by the Government of Uganda comprising representatives of key Ministries and the three Operators to discuss the remaining issues in order to progress the Lake Albert Rift Basin development plan,” reads part of the statement issued on Wednesday.
