    Oil Exploration vessel, MV. Polar Princess sailed into Mombasa harbour at 11.15 am yesterday.It will be working and marking test runs in the Indian Ocean in Kenya's territorial waters for three months.
    The 76.2 metres-long specially designed ship will be working offshore in the South Coast starting today and later move to the Northern Coast (Lamu area) in October.
    The vessel that will serve as an oil exploration base for a team of geologists from Woodside Energy, an Australian firm contracted by the National Oil Corporation of Kenya (Nock), docked at berth number one.
    Woodside is Australia's largest independent oil exploration and production company.
    In Africa, the firm has been involved in exploring for oil off the coast of Mauritania .
    The vessel's arrival marks a crucial phase for Kenya's quest to find oil following a 10-year lull.
    Sources said interest has been highest in the Lamu basin where geological evidence analysed reveals the presence of untapped oil and natural gas.
    Nock's Managing Director, Mary M'Mukindia, was expected to visit the vessel later yesterday. The vessel is owned by Multiwave, a Norwegian company.Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) who are the vessels local handling agents said the vessel had docked for general bunkering and crew change.
    ISS Operations Manager, Mr Joseph Weloba who was at the port to oversee the arrivals confirmed that the vessel will be taking between 30 and 40 tonne water supply, food rations and oil.
