Oil marketing companies are waiting for reports on the disapperance of fuel valued at about U.S.$20 million following a report that insists that in the last 15 months, Kenya Pipeline Company lost 11.46 million litres through spillages. Sources within the company has said that officials have allegedly been "cooking the books" to overstate the amounts lost from small leakages, which are then recorded as spillages.
