National Oil rolls out cooking gas initiative

Posted on :Friday , 11th August 2017

 National Oil has kicked off the pilot phase of its cooking gas distribution and marketing project dubbed Mwananchi Gas in 17 counties.

The programme, which started a year ago, is being implemented at a cost of Sh5 billion. It is aimed at getting more households to use gas as their preferred means of cooking.

The initiative will see the initial retail price of a 6kg gas cylinder come down to Sh2, 000 from Sh4,400. Nock Corporate Manager Zeddy Sambu said the initiative would put the price of cooking gas within the reach of the average Kenyan.

The initiative will see the State-owned oil marketer introduce 4.3 million new gas cylinders into the market to cut down on the use of non-renewable energy sources such as charcoal and kerosene.

“We want to reduce deforestation and air pollution and make gas available at an affordable price,” said Ms Sambu.
