Outlook on Opportunities in Kenya’s Oil & Gas Industry

Kenya has emerged as East Africa’s next Hydrocarbon frontier following the Discovery of 600 million barrels of Oil in Lokichar basin. The Discovery was made by Tullow oil PLC and Africa Oil in 2012.

Since the tremendous success of Oil Discovery in Lokichar the Government has taken an Initiative to spearhead Development in the Oil & Gas Sector. To carry out Data acquisition from its four Hydrocarbon Basins namely, Lamu, Mandera, Anza and Tertiary Rift.  This to make Oil & Gas Exploration attractive to Investors. As of January 2015 there were a Total of 70 Exploratory wells, about 90,000 Kilometers of two dimensional (2D) data and 6,300 Kilometers of three Dimensional (3D) Seismic Data.

The Government has also through the Ministry of Energy & Petroleum Drafted Nee Laws to regulate the Oil & Gas Sector. The Draft proposes the adoption of the R; factor ration for Production Sharing agreement. The Bill also proposes the Establishment of Up-stream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (UPRA) and National Upstream Petroleum Advisory Committee. The Upstream Regulatory Authority will manage the National Data Centre, Analyze and interpret the Petroleum Data and information from the sedimentary Basins and Field operations on Behalf of the Government.

Oil & GAS Exploration Blocks in Kenya will be awarded through Tendering & Competitive Bidding.

Kenya is also pro-active is developing Strategies to Build Infrastructure to Facilitate Oil &Gas Production. The Government is currently undertaking the upgrade the Lokichar, Lodwar, Kapenguria road to Facilitate trucks that will transport oil from Lokichar convey the crude to Kitale and subsequently Eldoret. This will facilitate the quick transport of Crude from Lokichar to the Export Terminal in Mombasa as the Government Reviews the Joint Development of a Crude Pipeline between Uganda and Kenya. Kenya’s Changamwe Oil Refinery is also expected to be upgraded.

As of January 2015 there was a Total of 46 Exploration Blocks.  Out of the 46 that had been Gazzetted for Bidding during that Period, 41 had been licensed to Oil & Gas Exploration companies. There are currently 22 Oil & Gas Production Companies that have acquired License Block in Kenya, these Include Oil & Gas Majors such as Anadarko BG Group and Total. The Entry of these Exploration and Production Companies in Kenya has been a Major boost foe the Oil & Gas Industry.
