Apache quits Kenyan offshore block
- Apache (APA) abandons its hunt for hydrocarbons in Kenya after finding only non-commercial quantities of gas in its sole Kenyan interest.
- APA says its decision was not influenced by a militant attack last month on a Nairobi shopping mall that killed 67 people and prompted questions about the security of facilities being used for oil and gas exploration.
- Kenya has yet to tap the potential of its deepwater play as it eyes neighbors Tanzania and Mozambique, where major gas finds have been made.
