Jinja Storage Terminal (JST) was established in the 1970’s as a strategic reserve, to enhance security of petroleum supply in Uganda.
Financing and management of strategic reserves became a challenge, requiring sustainable management approaches.
The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development handed over the Terminal to UNOC for its management and operation in May 2017.
UNOC entered into a Joint Venture with M/s One Petroleum Ltd, to ensure rehabilitation, operation and management of the terminal to industry standards. The terminal was fully rehabilitated.
UNOC currently manages and operates the 30 million litre capacity Jinja Storage Terminal (JST) in Eastern Uganda. Plans are underway to construct facilities for receiving fuel by Barge via Lake Victoria.
