TILENGA AND EACOP: DISCUSSION AND DIALOGUE CENTRAL TO OUR ACTIVITIES
Total E&P Uganda and its partners Tullow and CNOOC are developing the Tilenga oil field in Uganda and the EACOP pipeline to transport the oil from the field to the port of Tanga in Tanzania. The projects will bring significant economic and social benefits to both countries.
Total and its partners are fully aware of the potential impacts of their activities. Projects have been designed to strictly limit the impact on local communities and, where possible, help to improve their quality of life by limiting relocation and providing support for the people concerned.
Project design and implementation factor in concerns expressed by the communities affected, notably though ongoing transparent dialogue with community representatives on the ground.
Detailed environmental and social impact assessments (ESIAs) have been conducted that in particular cover access to land and water and potential environmental impacts of the projects. These assessments, which have been made public, led to measures to prevent or mitigate such impacts. >> More
