“However, no trainees were drawn from university and colleges or other learning or research institutions and there is no indication that any support was provided by the department to these or other institutions well-placed to enhance knowledge and skills on petroleum operations among Kenyans,” read the report in part.

The amount, which is held at a local bank account should be used for training Kenyans on petroleum operations, as per the provisions of the Petroleum Training Levy Fund established under the Exploration and Production Act.
