Cultural heritage preservation - fossil avoidance

Published on: 26 January 2014


During our operations in Kenya, we have worked closely with government and nongovernment institutions to ensure that we protect significant sites and contribute to the further exploration and understanding of these areas.

Throughout our seismic activities and exploratory drilling, Tullow used a fossil avoidance procedure. We worked together with the National Museums of Kenya (NMK) and this provided NMK with an opportunity to explore this vast area alongside Tullow’s identification activities.

We aim not only to conduct our operations in a way that is sensitive to the local communities and environment, but where possible, to leverage our activities for the benefit of cultural and environmental research.
