Kenya Petroleum Industry Report 2021: Competition, Influencing Factors, State of the Industry, Industry Associations

DUBLIN, July 27, 2021 – (BUSINESS WIRE) – The report “The Oil Industry in Kenya in 2021” has been added offer.

This report focuses on Kenya’s petroleum industry, which includes upstream oil and gas exploration and development activities, midstream bulk storage and transportation of fuels and petroleum products, and downstream activities including the manufacture and wholesale and retail of refined fuels and petroleum products.

It contains information on the size and state of the sector, consumption and production statistics and developments in the upstream and downstream markets.

There are profiles of 26 companies including Rubis Energy Kenya, the largest player in the Kenyan downstream petroleum market, and other key players such as Total Kenya, Vivo Energy, OLA Energy and the National Oil Corporation of Kenya.

The oil industry in Kenya:

Following the discovery of Tullow Oil’s crude oil reserves in northern Kenya’s Lokichar Basin in 2012, valued at over 4 billion barrels, Kenya was touted as Africa’s next major oil producer. Results from an early oil pilot show that the reserves in Turkana’s Amosing and Ngamia fields are commercially viable.

But the coronavirus pandemic and other setbacks have delayed the development of the oil fields for commercial production. The Kenyan government hopes to invest in the construction of crude oil processing and storage facilities and an oil pipeline.

Competitive market:

Kenya has over 1,800 gas stations operated by more than 70 registered oil marketing companies that supply, distribute and sell petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel, kerosene, lubricants and LPG. Kenya’s oil industry is competitive with many consumers and producers.

The absence of major price wars due to government price controls means that market presence, strategic locations, differentiation and diversification are key factors in customer acquisition.
