British Company Tullow Discovers More Oil at Erut 1 Well

Kenya dream of commercial exportation of oil is almost being realized after the British company involved in oil exploration Tullow discovered more oil deposits in its northern Kenya oil block.

Tullow resumed oil exploration in December 2016 and discovered oil at its Erut 1 well located in South Lokichar basin.

According to Tullow Oil Exploration Director Angus McCoss, the new discovery is a boost to the Kenya’s oil prospects expected to begin exportation mid-year.

Tullow is set to start producing about 2,000 barrels of crude oil daily for early small-scale exports as part of the government’s plan to test the global market.
