EACOP Vacancy, January 2023

The East African Crude Oil Pipeline Project (EACOP) is a pipeline that will transport oil produced from Uganda’s Lake Albert oilfields to the port of Tanga in Tanzania where the oil will then be sold onwards to world markets.  The pipeline is buried and once topsoil and vegetation have been re-instated people and animals will be able to cross freely anywhere along its length. EACOP runs 1,443km from Kabaale, Hoima district in Uganda to the Chongoleani Peninsula near Tanga Port in Tanzania.  80% of the pipeline is in Tanzania. It is a buried thermally insulated 24″ pipeline along with six pumping stations (two in Uganda and four in Tanzania) ending at Tanga with a Terminal and Jetty.  Here crude oil will be loaded onto tankers. It fully recognises its responsibilities both to environmental protection and the people, land and communities that will be impacted by the project, especially during the construction phase.  For this reason EACOP pledges to uphold not just the legal requirements in both Uganda and Tanzania, but also to fully comply with the IFC Performance Standards that set out international best practice in these areas.


The organization is inviting applications from Tanzania to fill new vacant post. READ FULL DETAILS THROUGH THE PDF DOCUMENT BELOW:
