Kenya pipeline tender attracts ten bidders

Jul 12, 2006 02:00 AM

Two international companies are among ten firms that have shown interest in a multi billion shilling Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) tender.
The two, China Petroleum and Japan Engineering, were among the ten companies that tendered for the Mombassa-Nairobi oil pipeline capacity enhancement project. The bids were opened at the KPC head offices in Nairobi.

The winning bidder will be expected to install four petroleum pumping stations along the existing Mombassa-Nairobi pipeline to enhance the pumping capacity. The first phase involves the construction of four additional pump stations at Samburu, Manyani, Makindu and Konza.
The bidder will also be expected to install a new AGO booster pumps and undertake other related works at the existing Kipevu Oil Storage Facility in Mombassa.

Six local companies also presented tenders for auxiliary works and civil works. These were Bomco Builders, Victory Construction Company, Njuca Consolidated/Tripple 8, Kobin Patel & Sons, Thwama Building Services and Lee Construction Company.
The tenders were advertised in May and the evaluation process is expected to be completed soon. Completion of the project is set for May next year.

On completion, line one capacity enhancement project is expected to double KPC maximum flow rate between Mombassa and Nairobi from the current 440 cm per hour. This is expected to end the occasional fuel shortage that has hit parts of the country, especially the Western Kenya region.
KPC has often been blamed for occasional fuel shortages in the country due to lack of capacity. The system upgrade is one of the ongoing initiatives by the corporation to supplies.
