LONDON, November 16, 2018 – Tullow Oil is planning a major campaign offshore Guyana next year, the company announced on Thursday.

“Following the interpretation of extensive 3D seismic, multiple high-quality prospects have been identified across both the Orinduik and Kanuku licences. Furthermore, the success of the neighbouring Hammerhead-1 well in August 2018, only 7 kilometres from the Orinduik block boundary, has further de-risked this acreage.”
