Tullow Oil and Chariot Oil & Gas plan back-to-back wells in Namibia’s Walvis Basin this year. Tullow plans to spud the Cormorant well on PEL 37 on 1 September using the Ocean Rig Poseidon deep-water drillship. This will be Tullow’s sole exploration well in 2018 as the company focuses on development in Ghana and Kenya. It will be followed in late October by Chariot’s planned well on Prospect S on PEL 71.
