Ethiopia: Dry well for Tullow

Issue 268 - 20 Dec 2013 | 1 minute read
Tullow Oil has announced a second unsuccessful well in the South Omo Block. The Tultule-1 wildcat was drilled to a total depth of 2,101 metres and will be plugged and abandoned as a dry hole. The well was targeting a reservoir section similar to the sands drilled in the nearby Sabisa-1 well, where oil shows were encountered but these sands were not penetrated in Tultule-1. Tullow said gas shows were recorded, “which reaffirm the presence of a hydrocarbon source in the region”, and the results of both wells would now be analysed to determine the future exploration campaign for the area.
