    Helping African nations secure their natural resources 

    When complete, the East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) will transport crude oil almost 1500 km from Uganda’s oilfields to the Tanzanian coast, thus making it the longest heated crude oil pipeline in the world. The pipeline is backed by both African countries, and Total and the China National Offshore Oil Corporation are overseeing its construction. The construction phase is expected to employ 15,000 people and a constant workforce of between 1000 and 2000 will be hired after construction.

    The pipeline will start in Buseruka sub-county, Hoima District, in Uganda’s Western Region and will travel in a general south-easterly direction passing through Masaka in Uganda, Bukoba in Tanzania, looping around the southern shores of Lake Victoria to end in the Port of Tanga, Tanzania.

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

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

    In addition to overall project management, RSK was responsible for scoping the ESIAs and collecting baseline data and directly involved in stakeholder engagement across ten districts in Uganda and eight 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.
