Introduction

The Crude Oil Marketing Department at Tullow is responsible for managing all physical crude oil sales and commodity price risk management for the Company.  We sell our equity production through a combination of spot and term agreements and are engaged in the spot marketing of four distinct crude streams.  These are comprised of Tullow’s operated equity barrels in Ghana; Jubilee and TEN Blend, as well as our non-operated equity in Oguendjo Blend (Gabon) and Espoir (Cote d’Ivoire).
