The Chad–Cameroon Project (CCP) was designed to develop oil fields at Doba in southern Chad and to construct a 1070 km pipeline from the Doba oil fields to oilloading facilities off Cameroon's Atlantic coast in Kribi, including all ancillary facilities, pumping stations, and other related infrastructures. It was, at the time of its preparation, the single largest oil and infrastructure project developed in that part of the world. This chapter discusses the legal framework for the inception and operation of the CCP, environmental and social aspects of the CCP, legal issues raised and faced by the CCP, and lessons learned from the CCP project.
