Who We Are


Our Mandate

UNOC was incorporated as a limited liability company wholly owned by the Government of Uganda in June 2015.

Our overall function is to handle the Government of Uganda’s commercial interests in the petroleum sub-sector and to ensure State participation in petroleum activities.

The company is also mandated to investigate and propose new upstream, midstream, and downstream ventures initially locally and eventually internationally.


Our brand History

On appointment as the inaugural Chief Executive Officer in August 2016, Eng. Dr. Josephine Wapakabulo visualised the need for a company logo and identity.

The logo had to incorporate the colours of the national flag – Black, Yellow and Red. The bird is the Crested Crane which is the national bird and reflects the one of our core values – concern for environment.

The shape of the logo is an oil drop, and red at the bottom represents gas.
