TILENGA FEEDER PIPELINE PROJECT ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT REPORT
The ESIA Report for the Tilenga Feeder Pipeline Project has been prepared in accordance with the National Environment Act, and Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations (EIA), 1998. The development of the ESIA Strategy for the Project was undertaken following discussions between the Project Proponents and the key Ugandan Regulators including National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) and Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MEMD). During the life of the Project, the Project Proponents will continually engage with relevant regulatory bodies including NEMA, the Petroleum Authority of Uganda (PAU), the Directorate of Water Resource Management (DWRM), National Forestry Authority (NFA), and others as necessary.
On behalf of the Project Proponents, Total Exploration & Production Uganda B.V. (TEP Uganda), Tullow Uganda Operations Pty Ltd (TUOP) and the China National Offshore Oil Company Uganda Limited (CNOOC) the ESIA Report was prepared by independent NEMA registered Environmental Practitioners from RSK and Eco & Partner Consult.
The Project Proponents are committed to meeting best international practice for undertaking ESIA and thus the Project’s environmental and social performance will also meet the requirements of the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Performance Standards (PS) (2012).
