Finding, developing and producing the natural resources of a country presents an opportunity to:

  • Create jobs
  • Develop capacity in parts of the national workforce
  • Create local business opportunities
  • Encourage foreign direct investment through our international supply chain

This is an opportunity we thrive on, and is part of Tullow’s DNA. We also recognise that paying our taxes in our countries of operation is an important commercial, legal and moral obligation. Tullow not only supports this obligation, but is transparent about what tax payments we make.
