May 18, 1999 02:00 AM

Kenya and Uganda have agreed to jointly undertake a project to extend the Kenya's oil pipeline to Uganda.
The project aims at minimising transport costs and reducing damage to the road infrastructure in both countries and also preventing the dumping of oil products meant for export into local market.
Officials from the two east African countries discussed a consultation report on the project and viewed that it had the potential of networking the entire regional oil industry.
The oil pipeline will run from Eldoret town in western Kenya to Kampala, capital of Uganda.
According to Kenya's Permanent Secretary of Energy Ministry, the project would cost about $ 80 mm and was expected to be completed in four years.
