Potential loss of access to water quality: 
Yes

Kasemene - 2 drilling activities will be conducted using a light medium rig (150 ton truck mounted IRI - 750).
Majot infrastructure will consist of a rig pad and drilling operations related infrastructure, including drilling fluid system, power generators, drilling machinery storage yard, water storage tanks, waste disposal pits, water treatment pits, storm water drainage, office space and a parking yard.

The area is characterised with wooded grassland, thickets and bushes and a total of 113 plant species were recorded in a radius of 1 km. No large mammals were recorded save for smaller mammals mostly rats and none belong to the IUCN list of threatened species.

As part of an extensive exploration programme across the most prospective onshore and offshore areas of the Northern Lake Albert Basin, Tullow, is to conduct oil and gas exploration drilling activities at the Male-1 well site, in the Bugungu Wildlife Reserve Buliisa District.

The proposed Male-1 Oil and Gas exploration drilling well site is located at coordinates 344653.47 East and 216221.67 North (UTM Zone 36 WGS 1984). The drilling rig pad is situated in the park, and can be accessed from the Buliisa – Biiso Road, branching off at Waiga bridge.

Cost-benefit analysis of the Cachuela Esperanza Hydroelectric Project

The Cachuela Esperanza hydroelectric mega-project is part of the South American Infrastructure Integration Initiative (IIRSSA). It refers to a 990MW hydroelectric dam that would be built on the Beni River on the outskirts of the Cachuela Esperanza village. This would provide energy to populations in Northern Bolivia and would allow the exportation of electricity to Brazil. The feasibility report, as ordered by the Bolivian government, shows that the environmental and social damages caused by this project would be massive - more than 900Km2 flooded and almost 100,000 people affected. Despite these impacts, the government considers this to be a beneficial project and has continually vowed the desire to move forward with it.

Extended Well testing for Waraga 1, Kigogole 1, 3 & 5

Uganda
Oil exploration
Completed
Name of development company or institution: 
Tullow Uganda Operations Pty Ltd

Tullow made several oil discoveries in Uganda including; thin channel- shaped reservoirs in Kaiso-Tonya(Mputa/Waraga reservoirs), over-pressured oil in Ngassa2, and thicker amalgamated fluvial channel systems at Kasamene1 in the Butiaba area. The reservoirs have different dynamics with fluid properties such as viscosity and GOR, the oil generally has high wax content and varying oil gravity requiring different designs and for testing and assessment.

Extended well Testing is intended to enhance understanding of the sub-surface potential of the servior and facilitate drilling requirements for the tested fields.
