The Kenya Pipeline Company has on Saturday April 2, 2022 affirmed that it has sufficient fuel stocks in its depot across the country. The statement comes against the backdrop of reports of fuel shortage in some parts of the nation.

KPC confirmed that its current stock position in all its facilities as of Saturday noon indicates that there are over 69 million litres of super petrol, more than 94 million litres of diesel, more than 13 million litres of kerosene and over 23 million litres of jet fuel available.

"Kenya Pipeline Company would like to confirm that there are ample stocks of petroleum products in our system throughout the country to meet demand. Our global stock holding is adequate to serve the region, with more ships in Mombasa queued for discharge," KPC Managing Director Macharia Irungu said.

The KPC boss further assured Kenyans that the state agency is commitment to fulfilling its mandate of consistently delivering safe and quality petroleum products to their customers in Kenya and in regional markets.
