Martin Mbogo, the managing director of British exploration firm Tullow Oil Kenya, told the legislators that only 70,000 barrels per day will be produced in the first phase of the Lokichar basin project.
He said Tullow faces challenges given the waxy nature of the oil, which will need to be heated to keep it flowing.
Mr Mbogo said Kenya is unlikely to hit its target for full production by 2022 given the challenges the company has faced with the local community.
Mr Mbogo said only 148,800 barrels of oil had so far been shipped from the Lokichar oil fields to Mombasa under the Early Oil Pilot Scheme. He said the scheme requires a buildup of 250,000 barrels of oil to be shipped out of the country to test international prices and oil quality.
He said 80 trucks are trucking the fuel to Mombasa. Tullow pays $21 per barrel for a round trip.
MPs from Turkana County led by James Lomenen (Turkana South) and Mohamed Lokiru (Turkana East) put Mr Mbogo on the spot over an oil supply contract that was awarded nine years ago to the National Oil Corporation of Kenya (NOCK) where his wife, Jane Mwangi, is the managing director.
Mr Mbogo clashed with Mr Lomenen when he accused the MP of having interest in a company known as Kapese that transports oil to Mombasa. He said that Mr Lomenen has interests through his brother, who is a director.
The committee put Mr Mbogo to task to disclose whether he has any association with Oil Movers, a company currently engaged in the transportation of the Early Oil Pilot Scheme.
Mr Mbogo was also confronted with accusations of deliberately orchestrating conflicts with communities so as to earn Sh10 million per day as compensation for idle use of equipment including trucks and oil rigs from the government.
He acknowledged that the NOCK MD is his wife but said he did not see any conflict of interest “since Tullow has procurement processes that meet international standards.” He said NOCK operations are 99 percent downstream while Tullow operates in the upstream petroleum. Cartels wanakula Nyama

Kumbe the Oil curse began long ago?
How can Tillie have international procurement practice, yet the MD ferks the MD of a major contractor.
Shit!
Mimi sipendi oil production juu ya vile imeleta vita/ economic turmoil in many developing countries.

Wacha tuwe tunanunua ya mwarabu.
