Our Ares of Focus
To better achieve the vision of the company, ARC Limited concentrates its efforts on the following core areas:
OIL and GAS
Discoveries of oil and gas in eastern Africa (Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Mozambique) have elicited a lot of excitement about the region becoming an oil and gas hub. This will have world-changing impacts. However after, the exuberance phase, reality has now dawned and the challenge exists in getting the resource out of the ground to the market in a way that will have positive economic impacts. ARC Limited is therefore strategically positioned to offer the following services to the oil and gas industry in Eastern Africa:
COAL and MINERALS
Coal is a unique hydrocarbon resource and therefore associated with minerals due to the similar nature of exploitation. Coal in Kenya was discovered in the Mui basin and estimated reserves in-ground value is in the tune of billions of dollars. Kenya has not had any other coal project in the past and it is still at the early stages of exploration while development and later production activities would mostly likely be experienced in block C & D. ARC Limited can provide consultancy services for coal projects and other minerals from consultants who are sourced locally as well as internationally.
It is without a doubt that water is an essential resource yet the quality of drinkable water becomes worse with each passing day due to human mismanagement. ARC Limited is aware that as many may term water as being “renewable”, it believes that one day it may be “non-renewable” as its scarcity may be aggravated by the limitless exploitation which is performed in unsustainable manner. As a natural resource based company, ARC Limited takes a strategic role in ensuring that this precious commodity is well utilized.
The potential for renewable energy is experiencing increased attention in the continent.
