Total: Tilenga project


Plexus has been working with Total on social risk management for the Tilenga oil export project in Uganda. The assignment has included the development of the social management strategy and the supporting social management plans, as part of the project readiness and project finance process.


Plexus prepared IFC-compliant social management plans including the Community Content, Economic Development and Livelihood Management Plan; the Community Health, Safety and Security Plan; the Labour Management Plan; the Tourism Management Plan; and the Community Environmental Conservation Plan. We also prepared the Terms of Reference for the Cultural Heritage and Archaeology Management Plan. With regard to the Social Management Strategy, this covered all key social risk areas, with particular emphasis on labour influx, labour management and community content. Further, Plexus provided input to the project’s approach to social risk management.


The assignment resulted in the preparation of an IFC-compliant social management strategy and a suite of social management plans, in support of project finance and the final investment decision.
