Tullow Oil plc (Tullow) provides an update on operations across the Group.
Jubilee field production - Ghana
Tullow is pleased to report that following the completion of work on the gas compressor on the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah, gas exports from the Jubilee field have resumed ahead of the mid-August forecast. Gas export restarted on 3 August 2015 and has steadily increased to around 100 mmscfd. Oil production has consequently increased and has now returned to previous rates.
East Africa operational update - Uganda and Kenya
Following a state visit to Uganda by His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta, President of the Republic of Kenya, a joint communiqué from both Governments was issued on 10 August 2015 which stated that, 'the two Heads of State agreed on the use of the Northern Route i.e. Hoima-Lokichar-Lamu for the development of the crude oil pipeline.' Tullow is pleased the governments of Uganda and Kenya have agreed on a route for the regional crude oil export pipeline. This is a major milestone and Tullow looks forward to working with the Governments and partners on development of the significant discovered oil resources in Uganda and Kenya.
