Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda have called upon bids for the construction of a 784km pipeline to transport refined oil from Eldoret to Rwanda and Uganda.

The multi-billion shilling project will stretch out from the existing Mombasa-Eldoret pipeline from Eldoret town to Kampala (Uganda) and Kigali (Rwanda). This extension will also serve markets in South Sudan, DRC Congo, Burundi and Tanzania.

The pipeline will be built in two phases, phase one consists of a 350km stretch between Eldoret and Kampala and phase two will be a 434km pipeline connecting from Uganda capital to Kigali. The project will also see the construction of storage terminals in Kampala, Mbarara and Kigali.

Expression of Interests should be submitted before or by September 30, 2014.

Lastweek, Kenya Pipeline Company invited bids for the construction of 122km pipeline from Kisumu and Sinendet in Nandi to meet increased demand for oil products across the country.

In June 2014, the three East African states requested for a consultant to carry out a feasibility study and preliminary design of a 1,300km oil export pipeline to Mombasa.
