Tullow Oil is to plug and abandon the North Lokichar basin in Kenya after a 3,000 metres drill yielded nothing.

The PR Marriott 46 rig will now move to the South Lokcihar basin to drill the Etom-2 well which is expected to spud in late November.

Exploration director Angus McCoss commented " While this wildcat well did not find commercial hydrocarbons, it provides valuable data as we assess the wider prospectivity of this basin.”
