OiLibya Expansion & oil exploration
In 2008, OiLibya entered the Ethiopian market acquiring 100% of Shell’s Ethiopia and Djibouti petroleum retail business. The amount of money spent by Oilibya to close the deal was unrevealed. Oilibya has bought many other retail petroleum dealers in Africa, including taking over ExxonMobil’s business in Kenya.
Bahru said at the time the sale was consistent with Shell’s global strategy to focus on oil exploration and get out of retail business.
As well as operating retail outlets in Africa OiLibya, previously called Tamoil Africa, proposed plans to build two pipelines on the continent, one between Kenya and Uganda and another to supply five countries with oil products from a Ugandan refinery.
