The Crude Oil Marketing Department at Tullow is responsible for managing all physical crude oil sales and commodity price risk management for the Company.

We sell our equity production through a combination of spot and term agreements and are engaged in the spot marketing of four distinct crude streams.  These are comprised of Tullow’s operated equity barrels in Ghana; Jubilee and TEN Blend, as well as our non-operated equity in Oguendjo Blend (Gabon) Ceiba (Equatorial Guinea) and Espoir (Cote d’Ivoire).

Please find further details on terminal logistics, standard parcel sizes and detailed assay information below.
