All projects undertaken by Wataalamu Oil Consultancy Ltd are technical projects with a non-technical dimension and we have experienced that the success of the projects is based on managing both aspects. We, therefore, work closely with InteStrat Services Ltd, an organization specialized in the non-technical components of complex projects. Each project’s requirements are assessed, and the appropriate InteStrat team forms an integrated part of the overall project team.

Wataalamu Oil Consultancy Ltd. has close cooperation with the Department of Gas and Petroleum Engineering of Kenyatta University, one of the premier universities in East Africa and the only one offering a course in petroleum engineering. As such, Wataalamu Oil Consultancy Ltd. accesses a number of capabilities that are not traditional to companies offering consulting and advisory services.

Wataalamu Oil Consultancy Ltd. works with other specialized organizations according to the needs of its projects. Our staff has long-established relationships with these organizations through previous professional interactions. We do manage a number of studies or contracts for our clients.
