Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) has placed an international tender for consultancy services for the replacement of the Mombasa-Nairobi pipeline. The selected consultant is expected to design and supervise the construction of the new 450 kilometers pipeline alongside the existing pipeline.

The new pipeline is designed to meet petroleum products demand for the Eastern Africa Region up to the year 2044. The Mombasa -Nairobi pipeline has been in operation since 1978.

KPCs Managing Director, Mr. Selest Kilinda, said the project will ensure sustained reliable and efficient supply and distribution of petroleum products in the region. As a result of regional economic growth and the rise in petroleum products demand, the pipeline traffic experienced a marked increase in the last few years, said Mr. Kilinda.

The services entailed in the tender will include preliminary and detailed engineering design, environmental impact assessment study, tender documentation and construction supervision. The successful contractor will also undertake procurement and supply to site all materials; fibre optic cable installation along the entire pipeline route and associated terminal equipment at the stations and upgrading of fire detection and firefighting facilities in the stations.

The Mombasa - Nairobi pipeline system consists of a 450kilometre, 14-inch diameter pipeline.

Petroleum accounts for 21 percent of the country's primary energy source. The demand for petroleum has been growing steadily at above 10 per annum. Some of the petroleum is used in electricity generation in thermal plants.
