National Oil Corporation Control Room Operator Jobs in Kenya

National Oil Corporation Control Room Operator Jobs in Kenya

National Oil was incorporated in April 1981 with a mandate to participate in all aspects of the petroleum industry.

The Corporation is wholly owned by the Government of Kenya through a joint ownership by the Ministry of Petroleum and Mining and the National Treasury.

National Oil became operational in 1984 and its initial operations were limited to exploration activities delegated from the then Ministry of Energy.

In 1988, National Oil went downstream and actively started participating in the importation and sale of petroleum products including crude oil, white fuels, lubricants and LPG.

The formation of National Oil was precipitated by the oil crises of the 1970’s (1973/74 and 1979/80) and the correspondent supply disruptions and price hikes which resulted in the country’s cost of hitting the all-time high of over one third of the total import bill and therefore making petroleum the single largest drain of Kenya’s foreign exchange earnings.

National Oil was set up to become a special instrument for the Government of Kenya to have greater control of the petroleum sector which is key to the country’s economic performance.

National Oil has since remained the Government’s policy instrument in matters related to oil and gas specifically in the upstream exploration of oil and gas, mid-stream petroleum infrastructure development and the downstream marketing
