Oil discovered in Kenya for first time


Kenya has announced an oil discovery !!

Right near its' border with Uganda and South Sudan.

President Mwai Kibaki says however that "commercial viability"
is not yet certain.


Published March 26, 2012
Associated Press

NAIROBI, Kenya – Kenya's president announced Monday that oil has been discovered in his East African nation for the first time, and a foreign oil firm said the find is similar to the light, waxy crude previously discovered in neighboring Uganda.

President Mwai Kibaki cautioned that commercial viability of the oil find in the northwest Turkana region is still uncertain, but he welcomed the news. The discovery was made over the weekend.

"This is the first time Kenya has made such a discovery and it is very good news for our country," Kibaki said. "It is however the beginning of a long journey to make our country an oil producer, which typically takes in excess of three years."

Tullow Oil -- which is carrying out oil exploration in the region -- said that 20 meters (about 65 feet) of net oil pay was discovered at a site called Ngamia-1 in Kenya's Turkana County....

Kenya Oil !


This should make for some good political ramifications !

Oil discovered in Kenya, should be good news for the people of Kenya, though I fear it'll be a curse if they dont play ball with the usual suspects.


Following a referendum and adoption of a new constitution in August 2010, Kenya is now divided into 47 counties that are semi-autonomous units of governance. These units are expected to be fully implemented by (August 2012) – in time for the first general election under the new constitution. The counties will be governed by elected governors and will operate independent of the central government in Nairobi.


Im sure if tptb, dont get it there way, they'll turn the people against each other.
The question one should ask, is it a blessing or a curse for the people of Kenya.

Why on Gods green earth would we invade Obamas birth country?

/end sarcasm...

Its good news. The more resources located in Africa the more self sustaining they are going to become. A very strong and stable African continent is in everyones best interest. African countries have been at a disadvantage for years. Its about time they start to reap the rewards of their resources instead of colonial powers.

So THAT IS why the US have troops in Sudan and want to get inside Uganda under the guise of finding another Osama Bin Ladin?


Ting called Sarcasm.

"Africa is definitely the land for the future. Total is looking for new exploration acreage. Its recent exploration track record is outstanding, and it has unveiled giant fields and new petroleum provinces," Mr Matesco said.


Now all we need is for the UN and US Spec. Ops. troops to clean up the civil unrest, tribal warfare and political corruption so we can get this oil to market.


TULLOW Oil, the British multinational, has struck oil in northern Kenya, Mwai Kibaki, the country’s president, announced on Tuesday at an oil, gas and energy conference in Nairobi.

At the conference in the Kenyan capital, some of the world’s biggest oil companies discussed their exploration plans for East Africa, which has attracted significant interest from energy multinationals as well as national and independent oil and gas companies.

Energy expert Duncan Clarke said the discovery of oil in Kenya’s Turkana region was "fantastic" news for the country, where major oil companies had in the past drilled wells that turned out to be dry.

Ian Cloke, exploration manager for southern and East Africa at Tullow Oil, said the company was lucky to strike oil early in its campaign in Kenya and Ethiopia. He said the company’s exploration activities in the region would gather momentum in the next year.

Put on your tin foil hat for a moment and look at what we are about to leave behind in the Middle East and Northern AFrica. Egypt, Libya, Syria, Iraq are slowly falling to the Muslim Brotherhood. Egypt is falling the fastest and we helped.

The new focus on the war for oil is to exploit the middle of Africa for its resources all in the name of humanity. A humanitarian battle that has been left simmering on the back burner for 30 years. Until Now!!

We have US soldiers in 4 African nations right now (DRC, DAR, Uganda, South Sudan). What country is next? Study Kenyas relationship with the US govt. and private US entities....

Ok, no ONELINER then...
Heres my take:

There WILL be something coming up in this region
that will "FORCE" US and probobly EU to act with
military forces. And the reasons may vary but the
REAL reason will be the OIL...

I saw a film last nigh i THINK its called The state within the state..
And its my firm belife that this is an ACURATE depiction of the
true nature of governments...
