Pipeline Network

The System

The construction of Mombasa — Nairobi pipeline was begun in October 1976. It was not until January 1978 that the project was completed and commissioned.  The success of the Mombasa – Nairobi pipeline system, coupled with the need to enhance supply of petroleum products to Western Kenya and the neighbouring countries, KPC constructed the Western Kenya Pipeline Extension (WKPE) which runs from Nairobi to Nakuru, Eldoret and Kisumu.  The WKPC was commissioned in March 1994.

KPC safely and efficiently transport Motor Spirit Premium (MSP), Motor Spirit Regular (MSR), Automotive Gas Oil (AGO), Jet A-1 and Illuminating Kerosene (IK).  The Company plays a critical role in fostering development and growth in the region by ensuring sufficient and reliable supply of petroleum products.  Apart from the domestic market, Kenya, the pipeline system serves the neighbouring countries of Uganda, Rwanda, Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, Northern Tanzania, Burundi and Southern Sudan.
