Background

The Government of the Republic of Kenya, the Government of the Republic of Uganda and the Government of the Republic of Rwanda (The Governments), through the Joint Coordinating Commission (JCC), are desirous of developing a refined petroleum products pipeline from Eldoret in Kenya to Kampala in Uganda and extend it to Kigali in Rwanda. This pipeline is one of the Northern Corridor Integration Projects that aims to accelerate regional development.

The new pipeline will be an extension to the existing Western Kenya pipeline system at Eldoret which is owned and operated by the Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC). The Eldoret-Kampala-Kigali Pipeline will serve, among others, the markets of Uganda, Rwanda and the neighbouring States of Tanzania, Burundi, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Governments hereby invite Expression of Interest (EOI) applications for pre-qualification from local and international contractors with capacity and experience to do Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC), test and commission the proposed Eldoret – Kampala – Kigali refined petroleum products pipeline. Pre-qualified firms will receive the Request for Proposal (RFP) for the project.
