Kenyan oil firm eyes BP assets

Kenya’s KenolKobil said on Monday it would be interested in taking up BP Plc’s marketing businesses in five African nations.

“Indeed KenolKobil would be very much interested in all these markets and the opportunities they offer for the growth of our group in Africa,” the oil marketer said in a statement.

BP said this month it planned to pull out of its marketing businesses in Namibia, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia and Botswana. KenolKobil already has marketing operations in Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
