Kenya government seeks to begin construction
of new 821 kilometer crude oil pipeline in 2020

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Kenya said on Tuesday that construction of the 821 kilometer oil pipeline that will run from the oil fields in Lokichar Basin in northwest Kenya to the port of Lamu is expected to begin next year.

Andrew Kamau, Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Petroleum told journalists in Nairobi that the Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) of the pipeline as well as environmental impact assessments are ongoing.

"We anticipate the Final Investment Decision by the shareholders of the pipeline will be completed by the end of 2019 so that construction begins in 2020," Kamau said.

He noted that the pipeline which is expected to cost 110 billion shillings (1.1 billion U.S. dollars) will be a joint venture between the government and the Kenya Joint Venture (KJV)- whose shareholders are Tullow, Africa Oil and Total.

Kamau said that construction of the oil pipeline is expected to be complete by the end of 2022 in order to pave way for first commercial crude oil exports.
