British firm, Tullow Oil, has presented a long overdue plan detailing how it will implement its programmes, following threats by the Kenyan government to revoke its operating licence that was recently renewed for 15 months. Relations between the firm and Kenyan authorities have been strained, due to the plan deadlines not being met in the past.
