KPC is one of the most strategic parastatals in the country having been established in 1973 to provide efficient, reliable, safe and cost effective means of transporting petroleum products from Mombasa to the hinterland. The critical role the pipeline plays in the national and regional economy has a direct impact on all sectors of the economy hence the need to have security set up in place for its preservation and sustenance.

In order to ensure utmost security to the pipeline and company installations, all types of security have been put in place i.e. IT realm security, physical realm security, political security and financial security.More emphasis is put on physical security to counter eminent threats from pipeline vandalism, terrorist attacks and common thefts and pilferages.
