We supply fuel, lubricants and LPG to our wide spectrum of commercial customers.
Fuel business is our key revenue stream and the lead contributor to our bottom-line. We sell white petroleum products as well as Black Oils. Our fuels business is divided into two as follows:
Currently, we are in the process of coming up with an advanced loyalty fuel card which once commissioned, will provide our customers especially those that operates fleets of motor vehicles unparallel convenience. Additionally, we are aggressively growing our Service Station network in the country to serve our growing customer base. Recently, we acquired all assets of Phoenix Uganda Petroleum Limited including prime Service Stations in Kampala which we are upgrading and branding with our corporate insignia.
The i-fuel is modeled on similar advanced fuel management systems such as the K-Card in Kenya
We are developing an electronic fuel management system, i-fuel, which we will commission into the market in the second quarter of 2011. Once commissioned, i-fuel will provide our customers especially those running fleets of motor vehicles discounted purchases of our fuel products, lubricants, LPG and related non-fuel supplies offered through our Service Stations.

We sell lubricants in large quantities to our commercial customers
We market the Kobil brand of lubricants through our expansive Service Station network as well as appointed dealers. Going by our impressive market share and customer feedback as well as demand, Kobil lubricants are by far the most sought after in Uganda.
We are Uganda’s market leaders in LPG business
We market K-gas which is our highly popular LPG brand. We retail K-gas in 6kg, 13kg and 25kg cylinders through our Service Station network as well as through appointed dealers including leading Supermarket chains such as Nakumatt and Uchumi. We also market and sell K-gas to our commercial customers across the country. In addition, we export K-gas to markets in the region. In 2010, we commissioned a high capacity modern LPG filling and storage plant in Kampala which has tremendously boosted our capacity to serve our growing in-country as well as export market.
We are developing the non fuels business segment through business partnerships with top brands
Kobil Uganda is developing the non-fuels business segment through business partnerships with leading service providers. In our Service Stations, customers are able to access banking services through ATMS, restaurants & coffee shops, mobile phone airtime scratch cards as well as car wash and tyre sales. Currently, we have partnerships with Stanbic Bank, Barclays Bank, Bank of Africa and UAP Insurance. Others include Hankook Tyres and Win Win Worldwide Microfinance Services.
