Tullow Spuds Well Offshore Gabon

Tullow oil reports that the Kiarsseny Topaze South-1 well, offshore Gabon, was spudded on Thursday February 12th using GlobalSantaFe's jackup the GSF Adriatic V.

This well is primarily designed to evaluate a potential extension to the existing Topaze oil discovery and has also been designed to assess deeper potential Cap Lopez horizon objectives. The well is expected to take between 40 and 50 days in total.

Tullow is the operator of the well and holds a 57.5% stake.
