Nairobi, Kenya, March 15, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The oil industry in Kenya has recently seen significant exploration success with a UK based oil and gas firm indicating oil reserves of over 700 million barrels in the country’s north western county of Turkana, in addition to existing off shore drilling sites.
Oil & Gas Kenya 2017 is being supported by the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum, Kenya along with leading firms from the upstream and downstream sectors of the oil and gas industry.
Trade visitors at the event will have the opportunity to visit over 150 international and local exhibitors from 24 countries, showcasing the latest equipment and state-of-the-art technologies.
Exhibiting firms include AIV EUROPE LTD (UK) dealing with exotic alloy and speciality pipeline valves; DELTA PIPE AND TUBE (UAE) dealing in corrosion control protective coatings, structural steel and heavy engineering products; AIUT SP. Z O.O. (Poland) providing complete metering, automation and process control solutions; CABLE DEPOT FZCO (UAE) specialists in high performance network cables and accessories and BRISTOL GASES (UAE), specialists in calibration mixtures and high purity gases.
“Improving global crude oil prices has caused oil and gas exploration activities in Kenya and the East African region to rise as global confidence in the sector slowly continues to grow back. The last year has been challenging for the industry but we fully expect it to bounce back to new heights this year,” said Max Lewis, Director of Sales for Expogroup.
Delegates will also be able to attend a variety of B2B networking events, aimed at bringing together global suppliers and local dealers to build new professional relationships, strengthen existing ones and discuss oil price trends, financing and growth and expansion opportunities in the industry.
