Uganda draws up route for oil pipeline

Oct 31, 2007 01:00 AM

The route for the Kenya-Uganda oil pipeline has been drawn and the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) completed.
"The EIA has been completed. It only remains for the National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) to go through it," a source said. "The authorities have also agreed on the details of a new company that will oversee the operations of the pipeline."

The authorities reached the agreement during talks in Nairobi between Kenya, Uganda, Tamoil and other companies that are to take part in the project. The source said other negotiations were taking place, but were near completion.
"Some of these negotiations are between Kenya and Uganda, others between those countries and Tamoil and others are between these countries and the Kenya Oil Pipeline Company. The negotiations include confirming the original tentative agreement signed by Kenya and Uganda as well as other agreements with the Kenya Pipeline Company and the fuel companies that will buy the fuel products."

The last activity to be done will be digging up.
The initial agreement was signed in Kampala early this year.
