Tullow Oil is a leading independent oil and gas exploration and production company. Our focus is on finding and monetising oil in Africa and the Atlantic Margins. Our key activities include our core exploration campaigns, selective development projects and growing our high-margin production. We have a prudent financial strategy with diverse sources of debt and funding.

Our portfolio of over 130 licences spans 22 countries and is organised into three regions;

West and North Africa

This region contributes the majority of Tullow’s production which comes from Ghana and our non-operated assets in West Africa, providing cash flow to help fund the Group’s operations. Read More

South & East Africa

Tullow considers this region to have great potential for exploration and future development. The Group is focused on its Uganda and Kenya exploration and appraisal campaigns and progressing developments. Read more

Europe, South America & Asia

This region consists of future frontier exploration acreage as well as some of Tullow’s mature non-core gas production assets. Read more
