- Oil contracts in Uganda, 25 Oct 2012
Suppose you've won the policy argument and even managed to persuade a donor to put her money down while simultaneously managing an incomprehending and at times openly hostile public opinion and media. Suppose also it all happened: terms of reference were set, a bid process launched and a reputable exploration company won the bid and acquired the new data (in this scenario across 20,000 square kilometres of open water, which, in that helpful way that broadcasters always do during the Olympic flag ceremony, we're going to say is the size of Slovenia). Suppose also the seismic shows as strongly as possible that there are sizeable “shows” of oil and maybe also gas.
