Exploration and appraisal


Tullow explores for oil in Africa and the Atlantic Margins. The function is lead by Exploration Director, Angus McCoss. The Group has had industry leading exploration success over the years, opening five new basins. Due to recent market conditions and current prioritisation of development projects, the Group has a significantly reduced expenditure on exploration. However, Tullow remains focused on its key areas of future potential and new areas of opportunity.
