Crude Oil Pipeline from Juba (South Sudan) to Lokichar to Lamu

The Lokichar to Lamu Crude Oil Pipeline (LLCOP) is being developed by a consortium of the Government of Kenya and international oil companies developing the oil resources in the South Lokichar basin in Turkana.

The LLCOP will transport crude oil from South Lokichar to the coast at Lamu for export.  The pipeline will be buried to minimise disruption to land users and wildlife.

The LLCOP will be built within the LAPSSET Corridor. Land within the LAPSSET corridor will be acquired by the Ministry of Land and National Land Commission on behalf of the LCDA.

The Crude Oil Pipeline Pre-Front End Engineering Design (FEED) studies were completed in 2015 and a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) signed in 2017 between the Government of Kenya and Upstream Investors (Tullow Oil Company, Africa Oil and Total). The Front-End Engineering Designs (FEED) and the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) studies were also completed in 2019.
