Examining the Crude Details: Government Audits of Oil & Gas Project Costs to Maximize Revenue Collection (Kenya Case Study)

Kenya is the newest oil producer out of the three case study countries. It was 2012 when the first commercially viable oil discovery was made in the Lokichar subbasin by Tullow Oil. To date, more than 86 wells have been drilled, most within the Tertiary Rift. Tullow Oil estimates that the Lokichar subbasin contains more than 4 billion barrels of crude oil reserves and an estimated 750 million barrels of recoverable oil. Early oil production began in June 2018, and ?first oil? is expected in 2021?2022.
