According to Tullow, the discoveries at the Ngamia structure were similar to those found at shallower levels.

In a statement, Tullow said, “The company wishes to clarify that the Ngamia-1 well has encountered oil and gas shows over a gross interval of 140 metres from a depth of 1,800 metres to 1,940 metres.

“The well will continue to be drilled to a total depth of 2,700 metres and then logged and sampled. This is expected to take a further three weeks to complete.”

Tullow has said that the Ngamia structure is the first prospect to be tested as part of a multi-well drilling campaign covering sites in Kenya and Ethiopia.
