Last week, KK Security, a company of GardaWorld, participated in the 5th annual East Africa Oil & Gas Summit & Exhibition held in Nairobi, Kenya.

 

One of the highlights of this year’s summit was the addition of the Upstream Oil & Gas Awards, which recognizes and celebrates outstanding achievements from within the emerging upstream oil and gas industry.

 

KK Security Kenya won the award for Best Upstream Oil Operations Security Company.

The event was very well attended by representatives from upstream, midstream and downstream O&G companies, as well as by members of the East Africa regional governments—particularly from Uganda and Mozambique. This high-profile summit features more than 35 prominent speakers, including ministry officials, senior executives, industry experts and government authorities.

One of this year’s speakers was our very own Chris Manning, the Managing Director of KK Security Kenya. His presentation on “Remote Site Security: Challenges, Opportunities and Strategic Solutions” was very well received. It was part of the segment on Environment and Security Risk Impact and Trends in Africa. Chris accepted the award on behalf of his team
