 LICENSING PROCEDURE

The Licensing of activities in the Energy Sector is regulated by the Energy Regulation Act as read with the Energy Regulation (Licensing) Regulations, Statutory Instrument No 2 of 1998.


Typically, an application for a licence should be commenced by completion of the prescribed application form in triplicate, accompanied by other relevant information as applicable to the licence being applied for.
 
Upon submission of the Application form, the applicant is required to pay a non refundable   application fee, calculated at 0.1 of the cost of the envisaged investment. After payment of the application fee, most applications require that a physical inspection of the assets or project be undertaken by the ERB. If the outcome of the inspection is positive, the licensing regulations require that the application be advertised in the Government Gazette  for a period of at least 30 days, during which period the public is offered an opportunity to comment on or object to the issuance of the licence applied for.

If after the prescribed thirty day period, no adverse reports or objections are received with respect to the licence application, the ERB will ordinarily proceed and issue the licence.

Below are diagrammatic step- by-step representations of the licensing procedure with respect to some of the more sought licences in the petroleum sub-sector.
