Tullow announced its half-yearly results for the six months ended 30 June 2011.
2011 Half-yearly results summary
Tullow had a very strong first half. Record results were driven by increased production from the Jubilee field in Ghana and higher commodity prices. Exploration and appraisal success continued and the Group strengthened its portfolio with farm-ins in East Africa and two strategic acquisitions. Further progress was made in Uganda and Tullow now expects completion of its farm-down to CNOOC and Total in September. In July the Group listed Tullow Oil plc shares on the Ghana Stock Exchange.
Commenting, Aidan Heavey, Chief Executive, said, "We have delivered a strong performance and achieved record results in the first half allowing us to double the dividend. We continue to make good progress with production plans in both Ghana and Uganda and while delays to the farm-down to CNOOC and Total have been frustrating, we now expect completion in September. With a strong balance sheet, growing production and a potentially transformational drilling campaign to come, we move into the second half of the year with real confidence."
