Construction of New Oil Terminal Begins in October in Mombasa

By Kennedy Senelwa

Kenya will start building a new offshore crude oil and refined fuel jetty in October.

The jetty is expected to increase efficiency in delivery of imported refined fuel for Kenya's domestic use and export to Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) plans to build the jetty near Dongo Kundu from October to December 2019 to handle larger tankers and relocate existing Kipevu Oil Terminal from Port Reitz.
