Nairobi - Daily Nation reports Kenya could start producing oil earlier than expected, with the company currently exploring oil saying it’s ready to start production “now” if the road network is improved.
According to Tullow Oil chief executive officer, Aidan Heavey, this would make it possible for transportation of crude oil to Mombasa refinery pending construction of a pipeline.
Experts estimate that it will take three to five years to lay the pipeline and related infrastructure to Mombasa allowing pumping of the crude oil.
