The Government of Kenya (GoK) has received financing from the World Bank’s International Development Assistance (IDA) towards the cost of the Kenya Petroleum Technical Assistance Project (KEPTAP), whose overall objective is to strengthen the capacity of the Government of Kenya to manage its petroleum sector and wealth for sustainable development. It is intended that part of the proceeds of this credit be applied to eligible payments under the contracts for provision of consultancy and intends to apply part of the proceeds for consulting services to perform a feasibility study for the development of a domestic gas market through the acquisition of floating storage and re-gasification unit.

The objective of this assignment is to asses; a) The commerciality of a converting existing thermal power plants to natural gas, b) the resulting implication on the cost of electricity, c) the feasibility for a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) and equity financing options for the required capital investment. The consultancy will run for a period not exceeding 3 months.

The scope of the assignment will include but not limited to:-

The following spectrum will need to be executed

  • Review LNG related studies and models. These are, however not limited to, the 2008 permanent regasification LNG facility study, the 2010 LNG fed power plant study, the 2014 FLNG supply feasibility models, the 2015 study “Towards an Oil & Gas Master plan” and the 2017 ongoing National Petroleum Master Plan.
  • Study the existing Energy policy framework and the 2016 PGTMP.
  • Determine the technical configuration of converting existing thermal power plants to natural gas. Assess subsequently its commerciality and conclude the resulting cost of electricity.
  • Assess the feasibility of a FRSU acquisition by studying i-vii
  1. Analyze the current global LNG market and its outlook. In particular, consider the potential supply from new LNG projects in East/North Africa. Provide an overview of recommended counterparties.
  2. Investigate contract framework (price, minimum & recommended quantity, spot and/or term, time frame, payment T&C) for LNG supply. The range of scenarios includes replacing LNG imports with domestic gas at the long term.
  3. Provide feasibility level analysis for the development of an offshore LNG terminal (FRSU, jetty). This includes cost profiles for possible regasification technologies, design & operations, marine & other environmental factors, land-side issues, and lease options.
  4. Determine technical configuration and cost profiles (development & operational) for LNG fed power plant allowing for technological change to natural domestic
    gas fed.
  5. Develop total expenditure profiles for LNG supply, offshore LNG terminal, gas fed power plant and any interconnecting infrastructure.
  6. Screen the different GoK equity financing options for required investment profile for the LNG supply and the offshore LNG terminal.
  7. Establish the breakeven cost of electricity for the range of investment forecasts and its robustness against regional/international gas price sensitivities.
