The UK-listed oil and gas company drilled the well further into the Miocene age sandstones of the Lower Lokhone formation, unearthing 50 metres of potential net oil pay. This is in addition to the 40 metres of net oil pay found in the shallower Auwerwer and Upper Lokhone reservoirs after spudding in May this year, Tullow Oil sources said.

Reportedly the latest discovery is of lower quality than in the upper reservoirs.

Tullow Oil also has plans to add a third rig to its exploration and appraisal programme onshore Kenya by the end of the Q3 2013.
