Working with communities

Economic development in Chad and Cameroon

Even in the current low oil price environment, the project has continued to make significant contributions to the economies of Chad and Cameroon. These contributions include government revenues; employment training and jobs, almost all of which are held by nationals of the two countries; the purchase of local goods and services; and the transfer of business and technical knowledge to a growing number of entrepreneurs.

Chad-Cameroon land use and compensation

With no need for new land in 2016, EEPCI continued its policy of returning land to communities. Borrow pits no longer required by the project contributed to most of the nearly 100 hectares of land that were returned to communities in 2016. At the same time it followed up on compensation programs that provide sustainable benefits to farmers whose land was used in the past.

Chad-Cameroon's community engagement

In recent years the project has had little need for more land in or around the OFDA and the pipeline corridor, resulting in a significant reduction in compensation being paid to individuals and communities. Because EEPCI, TOTCO and COTCO want to continue their close, positive long-term relationships with these communities, all three companies have continued to reach out to local municipalities and to provide support, with an emphasis on schools and other forms of sustainable development.

Environmental monitoring and management

Chad-Cameroon project environmental protection

The project’s intensive efforts to safeguard the land, water and air that might be affected by its operations resulted in an exemplary environmental protection record in 2016. These efforts focus on a wide range of non-stop operations that start in the Chadian oilfields, include all 1,070 kilometers of the pipeline and end at the Floating Storage and Offloading vessel 12 kilometers off the Cameroon coast.

Environmental Management Plan (EMP)

Project activities are guided by one of the most rigorous Environmental Management Plans (EMP) in the history of sub-Saharan Africa. It contains precise specifications on a wide range of environmental and socioeconomic measures that the project must undertake. Significant events related to EMP requirements in 2016 included project donations to the Foundation for Environment and Development (FEDEC) benefiting indigenous people in Cameroon and the resolution of three lengthy, complex community disputes with the project.
