Kenya invites bids for new fuel pipeline

10 October 2011, 16:30

The Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) has invited bids for the design and construction of a new fuel pipeline so as to cope with the rising demand for goods in the region.

KPC said it was inviting proposals for preliminary and detailed design and environmental and social assessment services for the section of its fuel pipeline between the port city of Mombasa and Nairobi, as it plans to expand its operations to Eldoret and possibly into Uganda.

In a statement issued to the The Standard, the company said that The new pipeline shall suit the projected demand up to year 2044.

In August the energy ministry's permanent secretary, Patrick Nyoike,  estimated the cost of the new pipeline to be about $300 million. The existing 14-inch pipeline linking Mombasa to Nairobi has outlived its 30-year lifespan and is prone to ruptures that impact the distribution of products to high demand points.
