Kenya, Uganda agree on crude oil pipeline route

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Ugandan counterpart Yoweri Museveni have agreed on a pipeline route for crude oil export.
 
In a communiqué issued at the end of a three-day visit by the Kenyan President to the neighbouring nation, the two leaders noted that development of a crude oil export pipeline needs to be implemented expeditiously, without further delay in commercialising the petroleum resources.
 
“The pipeline will take the northern route from Hoima to Lokichar in Turkana County and onwards to Lamu,” the communiqué said.
 
The announcement of the pipeline route will help investors in making their final decision on developing crude oil discoveries in Uganda and Kenya, according to analysts. Oil in Uganda was discovered about nine years ago.
 
Crude reserves in Uganda and Kenya are estimated at 6.5 billion barrels and 1 billion barrels, respectively.
 
On the refined products pipeline from Mombasa via Eldoret to Kampala, the two leaders agreed to develop a reverse flow petroleum product pipeline capable of transporting imported petroleum products to Uganda and also from the refinery in Uganda to Kenya.
 
Kenya would be responsible for providing security to the pipelines on its territory and financing the project, according to an official statement. (RKS)
