President Museveni will Monday hold talks with his Kenyan counterpart President Uhuru Kenyatta in Nairobi on the construction of Uganda- Kenya oil pipeline.
Construction of the oil pipeline is one of East Africa’s Northern Cooridor Integration Projects. The project was designed to move crude oil from the oilfields of Hoima to the Port of Lamu, through Kenya’s oilfields at Lokichar.
In a communiqué issued after President Kenyatta’s State Visit to Uganda in August 2015, the two Heads of State said the development of a crude oil export pipeline needed to be implemented expeditiously to avoid any further delay in commercializing especially Uganda’s petroleum resources.
Uganda’s oil producers – Irish company Tullow Oil, French company Total and China’s CNOC – have also been invited to the meeting, which will be held at State House, Nairobi.
