Offshore Suriname, Tullow is a partner to operator INPEX in block 31, where the Spari-1 exploration well is being P&A’d as a dry hole. The well was drilled in 52 m (170 ft) of water to a TD of 3,830 m (12,565 ft). Tullow has 30% equity in this INPEX-operated block.
Another of Tullow’s wells offshore Norway, on the E.ON-operated Salander prospect in license PL 650, was also dry.
