Tullow to start four-well drilling program in Kenya

Tullow Oil PLC plans a four-well drilling program in the South Lokichar basin in Kenya beginning in December. Two wells are exploration prospects, and two others are appraisals of Ngamia and Amosing fields.

The Etete well will be drilled south of the Etom field (OGJ Online, Dec. 15, 2015). The Erut well will be drilled in the northern part of the basin.

Ngamia South, an appraisal well, will be drilled to extend Ngamia to the southeast (OGJ Online, Apr. 15, 2013). Amosing Updip will target “undrilled near-fault volumes,” the company said (OGJ Online, Jan. 22, 2015).
