HOIMA. The Resettlement Action Plan-RAP for the East African Crude Oil Export Pipeline (EACOP) is underway, as government moves to meet the 2020 oil production target.

RAP is a social-economic survey which seeks to establish land and property ownership, Project Affected Persons (PAPs) and compensation mechanisms.

Gloria Ssebikari, the Corporate Affairs and Public Relations Manager at Petroleum Authority of Uganda-PAU revealed that a consortium of two Ugandan companies and an international company including New Plan, ICS and Digby Wells, have been hired to do the Resettlement Action Plan-RAP, which will last three months.

She explained that the RAP process started this month with the first phase, which includes disclosures and stakeholder engagements in the four districts of Kakumiro, Kyotera, Mubende and Ssembabule where site camps will be constructed to accommodate contractors’ workers and their tools to ease the exercise.

“The second phase will be for the entire pipeline route but it will be the same activities and procedures of stakeholder engagement, socio-economic baseline survey and asset valuation among others,” she explained.

Ssebikari emphasized that government is working around the clock to ensure the 2020 oil production target is met.

Uganda plans to construct a pipeline that will transport its crude oil from the Albertine Graben to the international market through the Tanzanian coastal port of Tanga.

Also known as the East African Crude Oil Export Pipeline (EACOP), it covers a length of 1,410 kilometers .The Pipeline will transport over 200,000 barrels of crude oil per day.

In Uganda, the section covers 296 kilometers and will go through eight districts of Hoima, Kakumiro, Kyankwanzi, Mubende, Gomba, Ssembabule, Lwengo and Rakai.
