Tullow has been active in Côte d'Ivoire since 1997. Over the past few years, Tullow has made a number of technical discoveries in offshore licence areas across Côte d'Ivoire as the Group attempted to replicate the success in neighbouring Ghana. However, following the relinquishment and sale of these licences, the Group is now focused on its offshore production interests in the Espoir field which sits on the edge of the African continental shelf some 19 km from shore.
