Tullow Oil PLC said full tensor gravity gradiometry surveys have been completed across all Kenyan and Ethiopian blocks.
The results provide excellent quality data that will enable interpretation of fault blocks similar to those seen in Uganda, the company said.
The first 2D seismic has already been shot in Ethiopia, and the program continues across the remaining blocks.
In Kenya, the Ngamia-1 exploratory well in Block 10BB is expected to spud in December 2011, and the location of the next well, Paipai-1 in Block 10A, has been selected. Tullow completed its farm-in to offshore Block L8 in Kenya at 15% interest with the option to increase this to 20% on completion of the first well.
