Kenya to Double Gas Supply Capacity With Completion of New Terminal

Kenya is about to double its capacity to handle transit petroleum products to Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi starting January 2022 from the current 35,000 tonnes with the completion of the new Kipevu Oil Terminal in Mombasa.

The $385 million terminal, which can handle up to four vessels at a time is expected to cut cost of petroleum products by reducing the cost of demurrage or the extra time taken to load and unload cargo, a big factor to the high cost of oil in the region.


The country’s’ Ports Authority (KPA) have scheduled a dry run test in December.

The terminal can handle vessels with a dead weight tonnage of 200,000 and has a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) line to stabilise gas supply in Kenya.

KPA says faster loading is expected to translate to lower prices for LPG.
