EAOGS title


The National Oil Corporation of Kenya is a fully integrated State Corporation involved in all aspects of the petroleum supply chain covering the upstream oil and gas exploration, midstream petroleum infrastructure development and downstream marketing of petroleum products.

In the upstream, National Oil facilitates and directly participates in oil and gas exploration activities in Kenya. As a facilitator, National Oil is tasked with the marketing of Kenya’s exploration acreage, management of gas and exploration data and the running of the National Petroleum Laboratory among other attendant responsibilities.

National Oil is among the few African national oil companies directly involved in the search for oil and gas. National Oil operates its own exploration acreage in Block 14T which is located within the Tertiary Rift Basin and runs from the shores of Lake Bogoria down to Lake Magadi Basin on the border of Kenya and Tanzania.


in the midstream development of petroleum infrastructure, National Oil identified and is working on three key projects including the development of an offshore floating jetty technically known as a Single Buoy Mooring (SBM), the establishment of Strategic Petroleum Reserves (SPR) and the crafting of a Petroleum Development Master Plan for Kenya. With the ongoing petroleum infrastructure projects, National Oil aims to position the Kenyan coast an important petroleum trading hub in the same league as Fujairah, Amsterdam and Rotterdam as well as prepare for the anticipated oil and gas production from Kenya and the East African region following recent discoveries.

National Oil has an active downstream business segment with a growing retail network of over 99 service stations spread throughout the country. The Corporation also serves a cross-section of resellers, industrial and government businesses from its modern Nairobi National Terminal. In addition to its fuels business, National Oil has developed and deployed a number of innovative products and services including its SupaGas brand of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), the Supa range of motor and industrial lubricants, an advanced electronic fuel management system named SupaCard and a vibrant alternative business unit that deals with non-fuel businesses.
