Ministry of Petroleum South Sudan (MOPSS) and Ministry of Petroleum Kenya (MOPK), are planning to undertake the Juba to Lamu Oil Pipeline project between Lamu and Juba, which will connect Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia and South Sudan.

The project involves the construction of 1,400km oil pipeline from Juba, the capital of south Sudan to the Kenyan island of Lamu to transport about 450,000bpd.

The project will further include the construction of an oil refinery, power stations, jetties, processing complex, compressor stations and metering stations and the installation of valves in pipeline, control stations and machinery.

In January 2012, the governments of South Sudan and Kenya have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for development of the project.

In September 2012, South Sudan signed an Inter-Governmental Agreement (IGA) with Ethiopia and Djibouti, a deal that was expected to clear the way for the construction of a pipeline through their countries.

ILF was appointed to carry out a feasibility study on the South Sudan-Ethiopia-Djibouti route.

In October 2014, World Bank has committed US$600 million for the proposed project.

Feasibility study activities on the project are completed and the report was submitted to both the governments in 2015.

In August 2015,Toyota Tsusho appointed as Design and Build contractor for the pipeline.

MOPK is planning to conduct fresh feasibility studies for a 865km long Turkana to Lamu part of the Juba to Lamu pipeline.

In May 2016, MOPK is in the process of appointing a consultant to conduct environmental and social impact assessment and is also seeking a consultant to carry out engineering design activities for the Turkana to Lamu part of the pipeline.

Construction works on the project is expected to commence by the end of 2018.
