BRIEF HISTORY OF THE PROJECT

In September 2005, Kenyan authorities, represented by the National Oil Corporation of Kenya (NOCK), applied for petroleum-related assistance from Norway. In December 2005, the Steering Committee of OfD approved short-term assistance. A second application was sent to the Norwegian Embassy in June 2006. A fact-finding mission was carried out by a Norwegian team in July 2006.
