Tullow Oil plc provides an update on a series of exploration and appraisal activities in onshore Kenya Blocks 10BB, 13T and 10BA.
Epir-1 exploration result
The Epir-1 exploration well is located in block 10BB in the North Kerio Basin, a separate sub-basin from that tested by the Kodos-1 well, 25 km to the southwest.
Whilst not a discovery, the well encountered oil and wet gas shows over a 100 metre interval of non-reservoir quality rocks, demonstrating a working petroleum system in this lacustrine sub-basin. Further exploration activities will be considered in the North Kerio Basin following analysis and integration of the valuable data collected from the well.
