The East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) ESIA
Feasibility studies on the development of a Crude Oil Pipeline from the Albertine Graben to the East African Coast were undertaken to ascertain the best option to transport Uganda’s crude oil to the coast. The Hoima (Uganda) – Tanga (Tanzania) route was selected having found to be more secure and cheaper.
The development of this pipeline is being led by licensed upstream oil companies in Uganda, with participating interests by the Governments of Uganda and Tanzania. The pipeline will have a loading pad in Kabaale, six pumping stations and 27 heating stations along the route together with a facility to load crude oil on to tankers at Chongoleani
