Kenya: AOI Rig Cocktail At the Sankara

With the recent confirmation by the British oil Exploration Company, Tullow Oil Plc that Kenya's oil find is commercially viable, interest has tremendously increased in the Turkana region in the Northern part of the country.

One of its partner companies in Kenya Africa Oil Corp (AOI) took the opportunity to host a visiting delegation from USA, UK, Sweden and Norway and show them the progress in Turkana. AOI is an oil and gas exploration company that has interests in Kenya, Ethiopia, Mali and Somalia.

AOI CEO and President Keith Hill welcomed the delegation at a cocktail held at the Sankara Nairobi Hotel, providing the platform for networking and mingling between like minds in the oil sector. This was Hill's debut event since he moved to Kenya from Canada a few months ago.
