It explores the overview of the upstream sub-sector of the oil and gas industry, specifically, the production division in Kenya as of March 2022, and highlights the current state, the impending progress, and obstructing challenges that must be overcome if Kenya desires to emulate the likes of Norway in managing its newly found oil resources. All the data in this paper has been gotten from secondary sources.
