Controversy Surrounding East African Oil Pipeline

 The Pulitzer Center published on 30 December 2022 an article titled "Fear and Oil in Uganda" by Sophie Neiman.

The plan to build the 900 mile long East African Crude Oil Pipeline from Lake Albert in Uganda to the Tanzanian coast has stirred controversy among the people it will affect along the way.  The French company TotalEnergies holds a 62 percent share in the project, the Chinese National Offshore Oil Corporation an 8 percent share, and the remainder held by the Ugandan and Tanzanian governments.
