Rwanda to benefit from proposed Uganda-Kenya oil pipeline

Mar 07, 2002 01:00 AM

The Rwandan government could soon benefit from the Kenya-Uganda oil pipeline project. "The proposed 320 km pipeline is said to have a capacity of 220,000 litres per hour. The pipeline will run from Eldoret in Kenya to Namanve in Uganda," the report quoted a study as saying.

Rwanda and eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) will be able to get petroleum transported from Kampala once the $ 80 mm project is completed, the report added. The pipeline will replace road tankers as the mode of transportation of oil products from Kenya to Uganda, Rwanda and eastern DRC.
Consequently, the cost of transporting oil products and taxes will be significantly reduced, which will inevitably lower the market prices for petroleum products in the region, said the report. It is said that Uganda and Kenya have already formed a joint co-ordinating commission to work out the details.
