TILENGA PROJECT ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENTE (ESIA) REPORT
The Tilenga Project ESIA Report was prepared in accordance with the National Environment Act Cap 153, and Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations (EIA), 1998. The development of the ESIA Strategy for the Project was undertaken following discussions between the Project Proponents and the key Ugandan Regulators including National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) and Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MEMD). During the life of the Project, the Project Proponents will continually engage with relevant regulatory bodies including NEMA, the Petroleum Authority of Uganda (PAU), Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA), the Directorate of Water Resource Management (DWRM) and others as necessary.
On behalf of the Project Proponents, TotalEnergies EP Uganda B.V. (TEPU), Tullow Uganda Operations Pty Ltd (TUOP) and the China National Offshore Oil Company Uganda Limited (CNOOC) the ESIA Report was prepared by independent NEMA registered Environmental Practitioners from AECOM Uganda Limited (AECOM) and Eco & Partner Consult.
The Project Proponents are committed to meeting best international practice for undertaking ESIA and thus the Project’s environmental and social performance will also meet the requirements of the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Performance Standards (PS) (2012).
