Tullow Oil suspends Kenya operations

LONDON -- Tullow Oil plc has temporarily suspended all operations as a precautionary measure in Block 10BB and Block 13T in northern Kenya. This decision follows demonstrations by local people regarding concerns around employment.

Tullow takes its relationships with the local communities extremely seriously and the decision to suspend exploration and appraisal operations was taken to prevent further escalation of the demonstrations while discussions to resolve this issue for the long term are ongoing.

Tullow is working closely with the local communities, the local Government and the national Government so that the company can resume work on Blocks 10BB and 13T as soon as possible. Tullow is fully committed to utilising as many local workers and local services as possible and currently employs over 800 people from the Turkana region out of the 1,400 people currently employed on its Kenyan operations.
