Job Description

Dimensions The East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) Project involves the construction and operation of a buried, cross-border pipeline to transport crude oil from the Lake Albert area in Uganda to the eastern coast of Tanzania for export to international markets. The pipeline will run from Kabaale in Hoima District, Uganda, to Chongoleani, Tanga Region, in Tanzania. The length of the pipeline is 1,443 kilometers (km) of which 296 km will be in Uganda. In Uganda the pipeline will traverse ten (10) districts, comprising Hoima, Kikuube, Kakumiro, Kyankwanzi, Mubende, Gomba, Sembabule, Lwengo, Rakai and Kyotera.
EACOP is an international project that “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.” This is also required by potential lenders for whom the “Lenders’ Environmental and Social Consultant (LESC) assesses and reports on EACOP compliance with lender environmental and social standards including the International Finance Corporation (IFC) 8 Performance Standards (PSs). The ESDD is undertaken through a combination of document review, site visits and interviews with EACOP and stakeholders plus identification of environmental and social risks and impacts that the Project could generate during the construction and operation phases.”
