Tilenga and EACOP: acting transparently

Tilenga and EACOP: acting transparently

The Lake Albert region in Uganda has major oil and gas resources, estimated at over one billion barrels. Uganda wanted to develop them under the projects Tilenga, operated by TotalEnergies, and Kingfisher by CNOOC*. Production will be delivered to the Tanzanian port of Tanga by a cross-border pipeline, built and operated by the EACOP company (East African Crude Oil Pipeline). 
The Tilenga and EACOP projects are situated in a sensitive social and environmental context and require land acquisition programs with close attention to the rights of the affected communities. Environmental and social impact assessments (ESIAs) have been carried out in compliance with the exacting standards of the International Finance Corporation (IFC). Third-party reviews have also been conducted to ensure that the projects are compliant with the best social and environmental practices.

Two projects rigorously researched and assessed

Several independent reviews have been conducted by third parties in order to ensure that the projects are carried out in compliance with the best social and environmental practices and with the requirements of the duty of care. Alongside the ongoing dialogue with the local communities, these reviews also allow the action taken to be assessed for effectiveness and potential improvements to be identified.
