Kenya: Second onshore wildcat encounters oil

Tullow Oil PLC said its Twiga South-1 exploratory well on Block 13T in northwestern Kenya has encountered oil.

Drilling is still in progress, and final results are expected in early to mid-November after it has reached target depth and necessary sampling and analyses have been carried out, Tullow said. The company released no depths or details at present.

Tullow Oil and Africa Oil Corp., Vancouver, BC, each holds a 50% interest in the Twiga South well.

The Twiga South-1 structure is the second prospect to be tested as part of a multiwell drilling campaign in Kenya and Ethiopia and is the first discovery in Block 13T following the Ngamia-1 discovery earlier this year in Block 10BB.
