Kingfisher field development area is spread over approximately 344km2 in the Lake Albert Rift Basin in western Uganda. The oil field is situated on the eastern bank of Lake Albert, which acts as a border between Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It was discovered by the Kingfisher-1 wildcat well in 2006. The production and processing facilities of the project will be located on the Buhuka Flats at the shores of Lake Albert.


The field development will comprise four well pads, 20 production wells, and 11 water injection wells. The well pads will be connected through infield flowlines to a central processing facility capable of producing 40,000 barrels of crude oil a day.


The objective of the project is to provide guidance to CNOOC to initiate an appropriate oil spill response in the event of an incident associated with the operations of Kingfisher Field, Lake Albert, Uganda. The plan details a tiered response strategy that takes into account the spill risk associated with the nature of the hydrocarbons that could be spilt.
