Kenya to Build New Pipeline

Kenya welcomes private investors to tender for the construction of a new oil pipeline

Kenya welcomes private investors to tender for the construction of a new oil pipeline, to run next to the existing one, to meet rising demand for petroleum products in Kenya and East Africa.

Energy permanent secretary Patrick Nyoike addresses journalists yesterday.

He was speaking during a news conference at the Norfolk hotel in Nairobi, on the UN Conference on Trade and Development, UNCTAD's, 11th African oil and gas, trade and finance conference and exhibition set for May 23 and 25 in the city.

Planned construction of four booster pump stations for the current pipeline this year is just a temporary measure to ensure steady supply of petroleum products for the next five years.
