The East African - - BUSINESS -

IN 2017, Tul­low signed a con­tract with Mul­ti­ple Hauliers EA Ltd and Oil­field Movers Ltd to each pro­vide 25 trucks to move crude in in­su­lated tank­tain­ers fit­ted with heat­ing equip­ment pro­vided by Prime­fu­els Kenya Ltd.

The con­tract pro­vides for trans­porters to mo­bilise equip­ment within one month upon no­ti­fi­ca­tion that Kenya is ready to roll out the EOPS.

Mr Ka­mau said the Petroleum Min­istry is in dis­cus­sions with the Min­istry of En­ergy on up­grad­ing the ex­ist­ing 33 Kv elec­tric­ity line from Turk­wel to Lo­kichar town to higher ca­pac­ity to meet fu­ture crude pro­duc­tion needs.

“Tul­low has drilled wa­ter wells in South Lo­kichar for 8 mil­lion litres. Full oil pro­duc­tion needs 20 mil­lion litres of wa­ter drawn by grav­ity flow from Turk­wel dam in West Pokot County,” he said.
