Description: Construction of a heated, 1.445km-long, 24-inch diameter crude oil pipeline between Uganda and Tanzania which is expected to start pumping Ugandan oil to international markets in three years which is part of the East African Pipeline Project. The oil pipeline would start in Buseruka sub-county, Hoima District, in Uganda’s Western Region. It would travel in a general southeasterly direction to pass through Masaka in Uganda, Bukoba in Tanzania, loop around the southern shores of Lake Victoria, continue through Shinyanga and Siginda, to end in Tanga, Tanzania. This pipeline will be the longest electrically heated crude oil pipeline in the world and will be heated so it can keep highly viscous crude oil liquid enough to flow. Estimated project value: $3.55 billion. Approximate : GPS Coordinates : -1.236979, 31.671879999999987
