Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC), a division of the Ministry of Energy, Kenya (MoE) is planning to build a crude oil pipeline in Kenya.
The project involves the construction of a 855km crude oil export pipeline from Lokichar in Northern Kenya to the Lamu port. It includes the construction of storage facilities, pumping stations and related infrastructure, the installation of metering systems, control units, equipment, and the laying of pipelines.
Total E&P Uganda has been appointed as consultant.
In June 2014, MoE invited bids from companies to oversee the feasibility studies and construction design of the project with July 25, 2014 as the submission date and in November 2014, Toyota Tsusho was appointed as design consultant.
On May 4, 2016, KPC invited two individual bids for the procurement of consultants to carry out an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) and Front End Engineering Design (FEED) with a submission deadline May 26, 2016. ESIA and FEED consultants are expected to be announced in October 2016.
In July 2016, the Joint Venture Partners including Tullow Oil, Maersk Oil and Africa Oil Corp signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Kenya.
The Joint Venture Partners will undertake the technical, environmental and social studies and tenders required to proceed to FEED for the project.
As of February 2017, the Joint Venture Partners are in the final stage of signing the Joint Development Agreement (JDA). This agreement will enable to commence important studies such as pipeline FEED, ESIA, as well as studies on pipeline financing and ownership.
The Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIA) scoping report and terms of reference were approved and ESIA baseline surveys are nearing completion.
Simultaneously, KPC is in the process of raising funds from China's Export-Import Bank, African Development Bank and the International Finance Corporation.
Front End Engineering Design (FEED) and Environmental studies are underway with completion expected in 2017.
Construction is expected to be complete by 2020 with commercial oil production in 2022.
