Top 8 best Petroleum companies in Kenya

Statistically, oil and natural gas combined   count for half of the world’s energy. The oil and gas industry have both a direct and indirect impact on the domestic economy, with oil and gas prices directly affecting the health of the economy as a whole.

In Kenya, oil and gas are incredibly important not only to individuals and businesses within the country, but also to the position Kenya is taking among other countries across the globe.

Early this year, Kenya reached out to 18 global oil refinery firms in the ongoing search for buyers of the early Turkana crude oil exports targeted for the second quarter of the year.

The oil refineries companies, especially those dealing with petroleum are the greater drivers on Kenya’s business industry and economic growth. This is because there is an increase in the number of cars and vehicles imported to the country every year.
