Tullow has been active in Pakistan since 1991 and currently has exploration interests across a number of licences.
Exploration & Appraisal
The Kup-1 well in the Kalchas block in Pakistan, in which Tullow has a 30% non-operated stake, reached total depth in December 2015. Over 400 metres of weak gas shows were encountered in fractured sandstone reservoirs and a drill stem test programme has commenced to establish hydrocarbon presence and productivity. In January 2016, Tullow agreed to sell a 20% interest in the Bannu West licence in Pakistan to Mari Petroleum. The deal is subject to Government approval.
