Dalbit Petroleum carried home the Leading Large Oil Importer trophy for its diligence as a large taxpayer in the oil industry category.

The company picked the overall trophy in the traditionally hotly contested market category featuring leading oil importers and marketers. Other oil importers, Ms. Ramji Haribhai Devani and Brain Field Oil and Gas Limited picked the Medium and Small taxpayer category trophies.

Dalbit Petroleum Chief Officer- Supply Chain, Esther Ngero, said the award is a further validation of the company’s commitment to be tax compliant.

The award, she said, had been made possible by the company’s leadership and employees’ continued commitment to uphold the best operating standards.


The firm’s adoption of information technology systems and global best practice in Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) standards, Ms Ngero added, has also served to enhance adherence to tax and related compliance standards.

“At Dalbit Petroleum, we are excited to receive this award which serves to renew our obligation to maintaining world class standards in all our business fronts,” Ngero said, adding, “The award is also a tribute to our hardworking workforce which is dedicated to fuelling regional growth and Kenya’s Big Four agenda.”
