Uganda Marks the Development of Feeder Pipelines to the Refinery in Hoima

The Ugandan government has set up a resettlement planning committee for persons affected by the country's burgeoning oil patch in Buliisa. The work, which will include a Central Processing Facility (CPF), construction camps, accommodation facilities, a workshop and feeder pipelines. is a prelude to full - scale oil production in 2020. Thus far Uganda has discovered 6.5 billion barrels of oil in 40 % of the explored area in the Albertine graben.

The crude oil produced in Buliisa will ultimately be processed in the refinery in Kabaale in Hoima after extracting from it water and associated gas as well as other impurities. After the current refinery upgrade the facility will turn over 60,000 barrels of crude per day.

As we reported on 11 August in this journal, the 1,445km-long crude pipeline from Hoima to Tanga sea port in Tanzania is expected to carry 216,000 barrels of crude oil to the international market daily.
