East African refined products pipeline firms up

The governments of Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda are planning to construct an East African refined products pipeline, in a move to end the unreliability of truck supplies to inland East Africa

The pipeline will distribute products from Uganda's planned inland refinery, and also will allow Ugandan products to be exported from Mombasa, Kenya. The new pipeline will run from Eldoret in inland Kenya - the end-point of the existing pipeline which carries products inland from Mombasa - to Uganda's capital, Kampala, and from there to Rwanda's capital, Kigali. The refinery, planned to be constructed near the Lake Albert oilfields, is due to be pipeline-connected to Kampala, allowing its products to flow to main cities in the region. The section between Eldoret and Kampala will be able to deliver products imported from Mombasa to Kampala, which at present receives its fuels by road-tanker
