The history of oil marketing in Kenya began in 1903 during colonial times. Initially kerosene was the main import in tins but later gasoline was imported in tins and drums.

Royal Dutch Shell established the first depot on the island of Shimanzi.


The industry was controlled by a few major international players i.e. Exxon Mobil, Shell and Total with competition from some locally established ones such as Kenol/Kobil.
