The Oil and Petroleum Industry

The discovery of oil, gas and coal in Kenya opened the country to new levels, placing it at a good position in the energy producers list.

The country continues to grow in its exploration activities as new investors show interest. This has empowered the industry, attracted review of the rules of business and adoption of new technologies in the practice.

Kenya continues to import petroleum products. The petroleum industry employs nearly 50,000 people and another 70,000 indirectly.
