What’s Kenya Pipeline Company

The government started Kenya Pipeline Company in 1973. It was to build a refined oil pipeline system and transport petroleum products from Mombasa to inland. Later, studies showed that a pipeline system was the most suitable way to carry petroleum products to the inland. This is because the pipeline gives low cost and ease.

A pipeline system now covers 1,792 kilometres from Mombasa to Nairobi, Nakuru, Eldoret and Kisumu.

The firm has petroleum products storage in Mombasa, Nairobi, Nakuru, Eldoret and Kisumu.

In addition, the pipeline carries petroleum products for Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan, northern Tanzania, and eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
