Tullow Oil informed the participants that oil production requires land and plenty of water. In fact, for the company to extract a barrel of oil, an equivalent amount of water is needed.

Tullow Oil reported that they have spent a total of Ksh. 4.1 billion between 2011 and May 2018 and 95% of the company employees are Kenyan nationals.

Currently, Tullow has provided a total of 30 boreholes to the residents of Turkana County to provide clean water for human and livestock consumption.

Members of the Civil Society asked Tullow Oil to share how  community reactions against mining oil and gas companies influence its business.
