Tullow announced on 29 November 2018 that it had agreed with Discover Exploration Ltd to farm into Blocks 35, 36 and 37, offshore the Union of the Comoros (“the Comoros”) in the Indian Ocean. Following the completion of this transaction, which requires Government approval, Tullow will operate the three blocks and hold a working interest of 35%. The Blocks comprise an area of 16,063 sq km with a gross un-risked resource potential of up to 7 billion barrels of oil.
Tullow has completed a 3,000 sq km 3D seismic survey over its three blocks in the Comoros. The data from the survey will be evaluated ahead of deciding next steps in this exciting frontier region.
