Canada Moves to Cement a Firm Relationship with New Oil and Gas School

In a rare diplomatic gesture, the Canadian High Commissioner Her Excellency Sara Hradencky recently paid a courtesy visit to KPC Managing Director Joe Sang to explore possible avenues for partnership with the newly set up Morendat Institute of Oil and Gas (MIOG). Accompanied by her Trade Commissioner Mr David Mwagiru, the High Commissioner was glad to establish that KPC is a very strategic government agency that operates the most extensive pipeline-based petroleum distribution and storage network in Sub-Sahara Africa.

‘I am quite impressed to learn about your role in not just the Kenyan economy but the region as well. Ensuring security of supply of petroleum products in this region is quite a huge challenge and I must commend your team,’ she told the KPC top management team led by Sang. While welcoming the diplomat to KPC, the Managing Director reminded her of the company’s expansion plans in line with Vision 2025, KPC’s 10-year development blueprint, that is going to transform KPC into Africa’s premier oil and gas company.

The certificate, which is valid for three years, was secured following several path-breaking audits with
KPC recording strong performance across all touch-points. “We are committed to further enhancement of excellence
standards across all our operations in line with our Vision 2025 to promote quality, sustainability, innovation,
and customer satisfaction,” Joe said.

“Our strategic focus is to position ourselves as a market leader with footprints in the geographies within the East and Central African region. We will therefore need to forge creative partnerships globally for us to achieve this and this is where Canada comes in,’ said Sang with a pointer that oil and gas supply infrastructure development in the region is lagging behind demand.
