Tullow has development and production interests in two Hess operated licences offshore Equatorial Guinea, encompassing the Ceiba field and the Okume Complex. The Ceiba field has been producing since 2000 and Tullow gained its interest in the field through the acquisition in 2004 of Energy Africa. The Okume Complex development commenced in 2004 and came on stream at the end of 2006.

Reduced levels of capital investment continues across Tullow's non-operated West Africa portfolio as a result of decisions taken by the field operators during a period of low oil prices. However Tullow sees opportunities to potentially increase capital investment in the medium term to offset production decline in these mature assets, and will consider this alongside the field operators as market conditions improve.
