The Republic of Kenya is a country in Africa. Its capital and largest city is Nairobi. Kenya’s territory lies on the equator, covers 581,309 km2 and has a population of approximately 48 million people. (In comparison, Alberta is 661,848 km2 and has a population of just over four million.)

Famous for its modern safaris, world heritage sites and international athletes, Kenya is also respected on the world energy stage. Kenya is relatively new on the world oil stage, and it is estimated that Kenya’s oil reserves stand at 1 billion barrels, under the leadership of the Honorable Charles Keyer, Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary for Energy and Petroleum, shown here wearing a cowboy hat gifted to him by our columnist Billy Melville of NEWSCO International.
