President Uhuru Kenyatta today declared a “great day for Kenya” as he flagged off the first consignment of crude oil destined for
export from Kenya, which will lead to oil becoming a major contributor to the nation’s economy.

“A great day for Kenya,” the President wrote in the visitor’s book on arrival at Ngamia in the Turkana heartland. Kenya is using the Early Oil Pilot Scheme, which will soon be followed by the Full Field Development phase, to establish itself as a crude oil exporter in the region and provide valuable information for future exploration and
development.

"This flag-off event and the anticipated implementation of the Early Oil Pilot (EOP)
Scheme marks the beginning of a long and fruitful journey," said President Kenyatta when he spoke after flagging off the crude oil laden trucks.

The President, who was accompanied by Deputy President William Ruto, said what Kenya stands to gain from the production and exportation of petroleum products cannot be understated.

The President said the initial petroleum exports will complement the country’s
existing development projects under the BIG 4 agenda. He said it will create scalable local employment and business opportunities including in the hospitality and security sectors. It will also enhance vocational training opportunities for our young people to ensure that they participate in the oil and gas industry.

The pilot scheme will also incentivise better road infrastructure in the region and spur electricity connectivity to more households in Turkana. Kenya’s breakthrough places it at the forefront in the East African region which is fast becoming a key player in the global petroleum sector.

Hii miaka 10 ya huyu jamaa, ni miaka 10 ya laana ua taifa letu kurudishwa nyuma.

Wawekezaji wa madini na gas, wote amewafukuza kwa sera zake mbovu na zisizoeleweka.

Makampuni ya gas yaliyopanga kuwekeza dola billion 30 Tanzania, sasa yamehamia Msumbiji, yanafanya uwekezaji mkubwa huko. Huu ni uwekezaji ambao ni vigumu sana kuupata, hasa kwa nchi maskini kama Tanzania.
