Tanzania, Ugandan leaders to commission construction of oil pipeline

KAMPALA, Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- Tanzanian President Joseph Magufuli is scheduled to travel to Uganda where he will together with his Ugandan counterpart Yoweri Museveni lay a foundation stone for the construction of an oil pipeline.

Magufuli, according to a ministry of foreign affairs statement issued here on Sunday, will travel to Uganda's oil wells in Hoima on Nov. 11 to lay the stone for the construction of the pipeline that will be linked to the Tanzania seaport of Tanga.

The two leaders in August this year laid a foundation stone on the Tanzanian side.

The pipeline dubbed the East African Crude Oil Pipeline will be the longest heated pipeline in the world, scaling a distance of 1,445 km.

According to Uganda government figures, the construction will cost over 3.5 billion U.S. dollars and is expected to be completed in 2020.

The pipeline works will be undertaken by France's Total, China National Offshore Oil Corporation and Britain's Tullow Oil. These three oil companies are already involved in oil exploration in Uganda.

The pipe line will on completion carry 216,000 barrels of crude oil for export per day.

Uganda has so far discovered over 1.5 billion barrels of commercially viable oil. Some of the oil will be refined in the oil fields while the crude will be transported to the coast, according to Uganda government plans.

Also while in Uganda, the Tanzanian leader will together with Museveni commission a One Stop Border Post at Mutukula, lay a cross-border mark-stone at Luzinga Village for the East African Crude Oil Pipeline.
