PARIS, Sept 22 French oil and gas company Total
is actively moving towards a final investment decision
as early as end-2017 for its giant onshore oil project in
Uganda, president for exploration and production Arnaud
Breuillac told investors on Thursday.
Uganda granted Total a 25-year production license for the
project in August, clearing a major hurdle as the east African
nation aims to move more quickly towards crude production.
An agreement on an export pipeline route through Tanzania
has also been reached, Total said in an investor presentation.
