Africa Oil Corp. says that the Company and its operating partner, Tullow Oil plc, have temporarily suspended all operations as a precautionary measure in Block 10BB and Block 13T in Northern Kenya. This decision follows demonstrations by local people regarding concerns around employment.

Africa Oil and Tullow take their relationship with the local communities extremely seriously and the decision to suspend exploration and appraisal operations was taken to prevent further escalation of the demonstrations while discussions to resolve this issue for the long term are ongoing.

Africa Oil and Tullow are working closely with the local communities, the local Government and the national Government so that work can resume on Blocks 10BB and 13T as soon as possible. The Partnership is fully committed to utilising as many local workers and local services as possible and currently employs over 800 people from the Turkana region out of the 1,400 people currently employed on the Partnership's Kenyan operations.
