Exploration & Appraisal
A major 9,000 sq km 3D seismic survey across Block C-18 was completed in the first half of 2018. Tullow’s share of the cost was carried under previous farm-down agreements. Interpretation of this survey and the Block C-3 survey, recorded in 2017, is in progress to identify prospects for future drilling. Both Block C-3 and Block C-18 offer potential drilling candidates for late 2020.
