KPC Takes Over Kipevu Oil Terminal Operations
04.26.2024 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

April 26, 2024 [Frontier Africa Reports]- Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) has taken over operations and maintenance of the Sh40 billion Kipevu Oil Terminal 2 (KOT2), targeting to improve the supply of petroleum products in the country and East African Community States.


KPC management signed a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with the Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) to run the facility, which can handle four ships at a time and cut ship demurrage charges.

In the deal, KPC will lease the facility and coordinate the supply of petroleum products to its reserves in Changamwe before being pumped countrywide.

KPC managing director Joe Sang said KPC will use the 100 million litre storage facility to store oil products to ensure a constant local and regional supply.

“By signing the agreement with KPA, we shall be able to maximise economies of scale by importing products on time and storing them in our reservoirs to ensure stable price determination,” said Mr Sang.

The MD said KPC is working on the conversion of the crude oil line to accommodate refined products to enable the system to pump the products from the terminal to the Kenya Petroleum and Refinery Limited (KPRL) tanks which they secured recently.

In August last year, KPC acquired KPRL with 45 tanks with a total storage capacity of 484 million litres out of which 254 million litres are reserved for refined products while the remaining 233 million are for crude oil.
