Tullow Oil Company has announced the beginning of the Commercial Exploration Phase in Kenya. The country will extract and export high-quality crude oil for at least 25 years. However, the Senate is currently conducting an investigation into the sale of two batches of crude oil extracted during the initial phase of exploration, which was intended for Analysis and Appraisal. Tullow Oil, a multinational oil and gas exploration company based in Turkana county, started exploring oil in Kenya in 2012. The Commercial viability extraction phase will see Kenya export a minimum of 120,000 barrels of crude oil to both regional and global refineries.

    Kenya's oil industry is at a critical juncture. It's essential that lessons are learned from past mistakes and that the sector is managed with transparency and accountability.

      I thought Kenya is now free from these fossil fuels. We cannot transition to clean energy if we continue back tracking

          Fossil fuels should be discouraged and clean energy used as alternatives

                      No, no, no. This is super bad. This means they will be allowed to extract oil until 2048.

                        The resumption of oil activities by Tullow Oil in Turkana amidst ongoing investigations raises important questions about the environmental implications and climate change considerations. While the commercial exploration phase presents economic opportunities for Kenya, it is crucial to ensure that these activities align with sustainable and environmentally responsible practices. Climate change is a global concern, and the extraction and export of crude oil have significant environmental impacts. It is essential that stringent measures and safeguards are in place to minimize the carbon footprint and potential harm to local ecosystems. This situation highlights the need for a balance between economic development and climate-conscious decision-making to secure a sustainable future for Kenya and our planet

                            This is a major test to Kenya's President who must choose to abandon this activity and channel all efforts to support renewable energy.
