Our exploration operations are concentrated in the offshore of the country, in six blocks located in the deep waters of the Lamu Basin, at a depth of between one thousand and four thousand meters. Our history in the country began in 1960, with the founding of the Agip Kenya Company dealing with the import and distribution of petroleum products and by products, nitrogen fertilizers and synthetic rubber.
Our work in Kenya
We explore for, develop and extract oil and gas in 14 African countries, including Kenya, where we have been operating in the E&P sector since 2012 and are developing projects for the country.

We create energy
We operate in the country through our subsidiary Eni Kenya. We are engaged in business activities and also promote initiatives for the socio-economic development of the territory, such as the creation of a solar-powered desalination plant to guarantee the population access to clean water in Lamu County.
Access to water resources
From 2015 to 2018 we built a desalination plant on Pate Island to improve water management in the territory. We planned a reverse osmosis unit entirely powered by solar energy and able to produce about 20,000 litres per day.Go to the Project
