||Acreage (sq km)
Tullow continually reviews acreage in the Equatorial Atlantic margins of West Africa and South America to identify possible analogies to the deepwater discoveries in Ghana. In January 2009, Tullow completed a farm-in agreement with Anadarko whereby it acquired a 25% interest in three exploration blocks offshore Liberia; LB-15, LB-16 and LB-17.
To date, one exploration well has been drilled, Montserrado-1, which made an uncommercial discovery.
Following a detailed review of the results to date from our West Africa Transform Margin acreage and considering future well commitments, on 13 June 2013, Tullow relinquished its interests in Blocks LB-16 and LB-17 offshore Liberia. Tullow retains its interest in Block LB-15 but for now will focus its attention on the Côte d’Ivoire and Guinea campaigns in the region.
