Tullow Oil plc declares the results of a series of recent exploration and appraisal activities conducted in Blocks 10BB and 13T onshore Kenya.

Kodos-1 wildcat exploration well in the Kerio Basin

The Kodos-1 exploration wildcat in Block 10BB is the first well drilled in the Kerio Basin, northeast of the successful South Lokichar Basin. Hydrocarbon shows were encountered in Kodos-1 which indicates the presence of an active petroleum system. However reservoirs were mixed quality alluvial sands close to the basin boundary fault at this well location.

The Weatherford Rig-804 drilled Kodos-1 to a final depth of 2,500 metres and the well will be plugged and abandoned. The rig will now be moved to drill the second well in the basin at Epir-1, 25 km north of Kodos-1 in a separate sub-basin. Following up on the encouraging hydrocarbon shows at Kodos-1, further drilling in the greater Kerio Basin can be expected during 2015.
