    Helping African nations secure their natural resources 

    Once completed, the East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) will transport crude oil almost 1500 km from Uganda’s oilfields to the Tanzanian coast. The pipeline is backed by both African countries, with Total and the China National Offshore Oil Corporation overseeing its construction. The construction project is expected to employ 15,000 people and keep a constant workforce of between 1000 and 2000 after construction.

    RSK prepared three environmental social impact assessments (ESIA) for the construction and operation of the Tilenga feeder pipeline, EACOP and associated facilities. The 95-km Tilenga feeder pipeline will transport oil from Buliisa to Kabaale, both in Uganda, while the 1445-km EACOP will export the crude oil from Kabaale to Chongoleani peninsula near Tanga port in Tanzania.

    The project assessed construction activities and facilities, the two onshore pipelines, pumping stations, a marine storage terminal and an offloading facility on the Tanzanian coast. The ESIAs were compliant with International Finance Corporation standards, national legislation and international requirements.

    In addition to overall project management, we oversaw the scoping and collection of baseline data and were directly involved in stakeholder engagement across ten districts in Uganda and eight regions in Tanzania. We also developed project mitigation measures and environmental and social management and monitoring plans. Our local partners proved indispensable during the project, and we trained locals in in technical and non-technical positions at management and non-management levels. The $14-million project was delivered by a team of more than 200 people.
