Tullow Oil makes new oil discovery at Northern Kenya well

BY RAZAK MUSAH BABA

LONDON -- Tullow Oil has made an oil discovery in wildcat drilling in northern Kenya but will conduct further tests to confirm its productivity, it said.

The discovery, at the Ekales-1 well, is Tullow' s fourth wildcat discovery since drilling began in 2012 at northern Kenya' s first oil basin.

Tullow' s Exploration Director Angus McCoss said: "This success at the Ekales-1 wildcat is further evidence of the exceptional oil potential of our East African Rift Basin acreage. Having opened the first basin with the Ngamia-1 well last year, we are now increasing the pace of exploration in Kenya aiming for 12 wells over the next 12 months."
