East African Products Pipeline Planned

March 2014, Vol. 241 No. 3

Penspen has been awarded a contract to undertake a feasibility study for the Kampala-Kigali segment of the Eldoret-Kampala-Kigali pipeline in East Africa. This project builds on Penspen’s history of pipeline work in the region which included the development of the Kenyan pipeline system in the 1980s and 1990s.

An initiative of the Kenyan, Ugandan and Rwandan governments, the pipeline will deliver refined petroleum products from Kampala, Uganda to Kigali, Rwanda. Upon completion in 2017, the Eldoret-Kampala-Kigali pipeline will deliver petroleum products to countries in East Africa and the Great Lakes Region. In addition, the pipeline will reduce transportation costs by shifting from the road tankers to the pipeline, which offers a safer mode of transportation.
