Since 2012, Tullow's successful exploration and appraisal drilling campaigns in Kenya have resulted in the opening of a new tertiary rift play in the South Lokichar Basin. More than 40 exploration and appraisal wells have been drilled in the South Lokichar basin and Tullow has also conducted extended well tests, water injection tests, well interference tests and water-flood trials, all of which have proved invaluable for planning the development of the oil fields. Tullow estimates that the South Lokichar basin contains the significant recoverable resources from an overall discovered up to 4 billion barrels.
