Tullow has been active in Pakistan since 1991 and currently has exploration, development and production interests across seven licences covering 13,064 sq km.

Early in 2010, Tullow successfully completed the Shekhan-1 exploration well encountering 45 metres of net gas pay.

In November 2008, the operatorship of the Kohat exploration licence was transferred to the Pakistan Oil and Gas Development Company Limited, significantly reducing Tullow's in-country overheads with focus now on the Group’s existing high-impact exploration potential.

In March 2012, Tullow took the decision to commence a process to sell these Asian assets in order to focus on its core African and Atlantic Margin strategy and awaits Government consents to complete the sale.

The sale process of Tullow’s 100% owned Pakistan subsidiary (TPDL) resumed following national elections and the installation of a new government in Islamabad in 2013. Tullow is awaiting Government consent to complete the sale of its Pakistan assets to Ocean Pakistan Ltd.
