Tullow Oil plc provides an update on exploration and appraisal activities in onshore Kenya Block 10BB, 13T and Block 10BA.

Engomo-1 exploration well

The Engomo-1 exploration well in Block 10BA was drilled to a total depth of 2,353 metres utilising the SMP-106 rig.

The well encountered interbedded sandstones, siltstones and claystones but no significant oil or gas shows were encountered and the well has been plugged and abandoned. Engomo-1 was the first well drilled in the large North Turkana Basin and is located west of Lake Turkana where numerous naturally occurring oil slicks and seeps have been observed.

Analysis is being focused on high-grading the remaining prospectivity in the basin. The SMP-106 rig will now be demobilized.
