TUKO.co.ke has learnt the installation will be overseen by the energy regulator, in conjunction with Kenya Revenue Authority(KRA).

It is important to note the two government institutions will set up the quality watch facility just like the ones at the Kenya Port Authority in Mombasa after running several tests and piloting the same in July 2019.

The idea to install the testing unit at the Namanga border came about following endless complaints from different quotas in Kenya over low quality of gas entering the country from Tanzania.
