Turkana oil discovery in the Kenya Rift Basin

NAIROBI,(KWP) - President Mwai Kibaki announced on Monday that Oil has been discovered in Kenya after exploratory drilling by Anglo-Irish firm Tullow Oil in the country's north-western Turkana region.



Mr Kibaki said it was "the first time Kenya has made such a discovery" and called it a "major breakthrough" and that Tullow would drill more wells to establish the commercial viability of the oil.

"This is the first time Kenya has made such a discovery and it is very good news," Kibaki during the release of government performance contracting results in Nairobi.

"It is... the beginning of a long journey to make our country an oil producer, which typically takes in excess of three years. We shall be giving the nation more information as the oil exploration process continues," he said.

On its website, Tullow Oil plc (Tullow) announced that the Ngamia-1 exploration well in Kenya has encountered in excess of 20 metres of net oil pay.

The well, located in the Turkana County of Kenya Block 10BB, was drilled to an intermediate depth of 1,041 metres and has been successfully logged and sampled. Moveable oil with an API greater than 30 degrees has been recovered to surface. This oil has similar properties to the light waxy crude discovered in Uganda.

The Ngamia structure is the first prospect to be tested as part of a multi-well drilling campaign in Kenya and Ethiopia. Many leads and prospects similar to Ngamia have been identified and following this discovery the outlook for further success has been significantly improved.

The well will now be drilled to a depth of approximately 2,700 metres to explore for deeper potential.

Tullow has a 50% operated interest in multiple licences in the Kenya & Ethiopia Rift Basins covering in excess of 100,000 square kilometres. The Turkana County, where the Ngamia discovery has been made, is one of seven basins mapped in Tullow’s acreage and is similar in size to the 9,000 square kilometre Lake Albert Rift basin in Uganda.
