Siemens- Lot Of Potential In Uganda's Oil And Gas Sector

  Patrice Laporte, Vice President of Siemens North American Oil & Gas Division, presented a keynote titled ‘Digitalization in the Oil and Gas Sector’.

“Oil and gas projects are becoming increasingly complex and the need for an integrated solution is important,” said Laporte. “Currently the positive economic impact in Uganda from the oil and gas sector is promising but only through judicious planning and implementation of the proposed pipeline that it will benefit the country and its citizens.”
The proposed oil pipeline will be the world longest electrically heated crude oil pipeline stretching from Uganda oil fields to the Tanzanian port of. It is going to be one of the most expensive projects to develop upstream, midstream and downstream infrastructure.
“Uganda is an exciting site for exploration with an estimated 6.5 bn barrels of oil and close to 500 bn cubic ft of gas. Siemens has a good track record of delivering fit-for-purpose technical solutions on a large scale in remote locations. This expertise and knowledge can play an important role in ensuring the performance and on-time delivery of a key infrastructure project of this magnitude,” added Laporte.
Because of its full spectrum solutions, products, and services, siemens is considered one of the technology leaders in the industry “For many years Siemens have been supplying industrial power generation, automation and power distribution strengths and experience to the oil and gas industry.” 
Siemens is partnering with Uganda on a number of fronts related to the country’s immediate and long-term energy and infrastructure ambitions as well as actively investigating a way to establish a local presence based on business sustainability.  
Siemens CEO for Southern and Eastern, Sabine Dall’Omo, said “Siemens is a company that is optimistic about the long-term fundamentals of the Ugandan market are willing to support sustainable development with solutions and projects in Africa, for Africa and are actively reviewing the requirements for the organization to open an office in Uganda taking into consideration business sustainability.”
