Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

Tullow Oil response

Author: Tullow Oil, Published on: 19 May 2015

Thank you for your email and the opportunity to respond. [The] analysis of Tullow’s position in Turkana is largely correct although I would dispute some of the details: we are not, for example, involved, in secretive deals. Also everything we do in Northern Kenya, including the use of land, is regulated and administered by the Government of Kenya and through their licencing system.

 As regards LAPSETT, this route was suggested and planned many years before oil was discovered in Northern Kenya and therefore did not involve Tullow in any way. The Governments of Kenya and Uganda have jointly commissioned a pipeline study for oil export which will look at a Northern and Southern route (the former largely follows LAPSSET) and we await the outcome of that study.

This is a response from the following companies: Tullow Oil
