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.


Deep water exploration

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.

In December 2020 Eni CEO Descalzi met The President of Kenya Uhuru Kenyatta. On the sidelines of the meeting, amendments to the Production Sharing Contracts (PSC) in force were signed, pertaining to three exploration permits offshore Mombasa.

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.

Circular economy to the country's decarbonisation process

In order to contribute to the country's decarbonisation process, in December 2020 the President of the Republic Uhuru Kenyatta and the CEO of Eni Claudio Descalzi discussed initiatives of circular economy, including the recovery, regeneration and reuse of agricultural and food waste produced in the country.

Specifically, the parties have identified strategic lines to implement a multi-year plan to incentivize separate collection of waste and agricultural residues, which are the ideal raw material for biofuel plants, leveraging the circular economy technologies developed by Eni. The plan also includes the study for the conversion of the Mombasa refinery into a biorefinery.

Support for Kenya in managing Covid-19: photogallery

Through Eni Kenya and in collaboration with the National Oil Corporation of Kenya (NOCK) in July, September and October 2020, we delivered surgical masks and bottles of hand sanitiser to vulnerable families, young people and health workers in the Mombasa and Kwale counties, with the aim of boosting measures put in place by the country to curb the spread of the virus. Furthermore, through the National Government we engaged around 2,000 young people in a job placement programme which, in addition to ensuring the disinfection of areas, aims to create income opportunities for those who have found themselves in difficulty due to the pandemic . The initiative also included the donation of 50 wash-hand pedal sinks sited in various public areas.

COVID-19: our global commitment

As pandemic challenges increase globally, so does our commitment to the communities in the countries where we operate.
