Tullow is Africa’s leading global independent oil and gas exploration and production company. The group has interest in over 85 exploration and production licenses across 17 countries which are managed as three business delivery teams: West Africa, East Africa and New Ventures. It was started in a small town called Tullow, about 35 miles South of Dublin, Ireland I the year 1986. Its first on shore UK license was awarded in 1988 and they acquired exploration acreage in Spain, Italy and South Yemen. In the same year its shares was listed on the London and Irish Stock Exchange. In 2007, Tullow’s exploration success continued with its largest ever discovery which led directly to the development of the Jubilee field, offshore Ghana. There was 100% exploration success in Uganda, moving this project closer to the commercial threshold for development. The Group generated record production, sales revenue, operating cash flow and growth in reserves and resources. They currently hold interest in the Orinduik block and Kanuku block off shore of Guyana and other blocks offshore Suriname and French Guiana.
