Overview

In 2006, commercial quantities of oil were confirmed to exist in the Lake Albert basin in Uganda. The Oil companies in Uganda; CNOOC LTD, TotalEnergies and TULLOW PLC completed the exploration phase. In November 2020 TotalEnergies finalized the acquisition of Tullow’s entire interests in Uganda Lake Albert development project including the East African Crude Oil Pipeline in 2020. TotalEnergies, now a majority shareholder and CNOOC are now headed into development phase, which will consequently lead to the production of Uganda’s oil resources.

Once produced, the crude oil will be partly refined in Uganda to supply the local market and partly exported to the international market. The export to the international market will be through an export crude oil pipeline; The East Africa Crude Oil Export Pipeline (EACOP).

Our Operations

Land will be required to construct the EACOP and related facilities. This land will be acquired on either a temporary or permanent basis.

The EACOP Project is committed to meaningful engagement with all of its stakeholders based on the principles of participation, respect for human rights, non-discrimination, empowerment, transparency and accountability.

For the EACOP project we will ensure that potential effects on the health, safety, and security of communities, workers and the environment, are addressed and managed throughout the planning, construction, and operational phases of the project.

For the EACOP project we will ensure that potential effects on the health, safety, and security of communities, workers and the environment, are addressed and managed throughout the planning, construction, and operational phases of the project.

Once ready, the pipeline is carefully placed in the pre-dug trench or, in some cases it will require to be bored under waterways or roads by using horizontal drilling.

Health and Safety is an integral part of the EACOP Project strategy, and one of our key values. The health and safety of our employees and stakeholders is top priority.

Different studies are on-going in order to define the final design of the pipeline;

  • The Geophysical and Geotechnical Surveys – Thorough and comprehensive site investigation for design and construction
  • The Front End Engineering Design (FEED) –  COMPLETED
  • Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA)
