MOU signed on Uganda-Tanzania crude line

The governments of Uganda and Tanzania, the Tanzanian Petroleum Development Corp., and Total E&P Uganda have signed a memorandum of understanding on “development principles” for a crude oil pipeline between Hoima, Uganda, and Tanga Port, Tanzania.

Production has yet to start from any of several oil discoveries made in Uganda since 2006. Total, Tullow Oil PLC, and CNOOC Ltd. have development proposals in various stages of negotiation.

The Ugandan government also is considering two export-pipeline routes through Kenya.
