Really interesting read, overall well-written. Demonstrates mastery of the course elements. Your paper is ambitious in scope in that it does not only demonstrate the knowledge gained during the course, but goes further and adds the developments in Uganda, where you prove your capacity to apply the course elements to a novel case and undertake more in-depth analysis. High level of critical thinking is demonstrated in the paper and you very skilfully bring forward novel points in connection to gained knowledge. Your paper delivers until the end., abstract: This paper discusses the internationalization of the petroleum industry as witnessed within Uganda's petroleum legal and regulatory framework, drawing heavily on the Host Government Contracts (HGC). The country is selected for a number of reasons. First, the framework relates strongly with the other countries across East Africa, a region that is profoundly becoming a new petroleum frontier.1 Second, Uganda's commercial oil discoveries realized in early 2006 have since increased to become the largest on-shore oil reserves in the Sub-Sahara Africa (SSA) over the last 20 years.2 Third, this 'black gold' potential has seen strong foreign interest, especially over the last ten years with country now pitted to become a top-50 oil producer in the mid-term if the development plan is achieved.3 As a result, the country has witnessed legal, regulatory and policy reforms; strongly over the last ten years, aimed at improved management of the nascent industry as shall be discussed.
The paper is structured as follows. In the first section, a chronological development of country's petroleum legal, regulatory and policy framework is discussed. Section two explains the HGC that has been employed in Uganda to manage its hydrocarbon resources. In the third section, internationalization of the industry as reflected in Uganda's framework is considered. Although the focus is on host government contracting, the interdependence with the public law framework that governs it is appreciated. For this reason, the discussion permeates beyond the HGCs to include this framework. While it is adduced that internationalization within Uganda's legal system is apparent and still progressing, the paper suggests that developing countries face some specific challenges. In the last section, these challenges are assessed along with recommendations to remediate them, and entrench this narrative.
