The schools are meant to cater for the learning needs of the people who were evicted from the land earmarked for the construction of an oil refinery in Kabaale parish, Buseruka Siub-county, Hoima district.
Only two consortia are in the running to secure a deal for the construction of Ugandaâ€™s oil refinery, the ministry of energy has announced. In a statement issued by the Ministry of Energy, two firms, China Pipeline Petroleum Bureau and Marubeni Corporation from China are nolonger in the running. The ministry says the proposal from Marubeni Corporation was not evaluated due to lack of a bid bond whereas China Pipeline Petroleum Bureauâ€™s proposal did not adequately satisfy all the requirements.
In addition, the nature of the oil means the refinery would undoubtedly require specialized materials that are likely to be imported adding to the cost implication, which may further extend the suggested oil production date.
