Uganda has started to line up pipe suppliers and land acquisition processes in Tanzania ahead of the kick-off of construction of the East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP).

The EACOP General Manager, Martin Tiffen revealed the progress during a two-day Uganda International Oil and Gas Summit (UIOGS) held virtually on Tuesday and Wednesday last week.
Mr. Tiffen said the main contracts with suppliers will be signed once the legal and commercial framework is completed.
“We have identified four key contractors who are working under conditional award”, he said, noting that EACOP has a number of mills and steel suppliers around the world lined up and ready to meet our specification and delivery schedule.
