Tullow Oil response

Author: Tullow Oil, Published on: 19 May 2015

Thank you for your email and the opportunity to respond. [The] analysis of Tullow’s position in Turkana is largely correct although I would dispute some of the details: we are not, for example, involved, in secretive deals. Also everything we do in Northern Kenya, including the use of land, is regulated and administered by the Government of Kenya and through their licencing system.

 As regards LAPSETT, this route was suggested and planned many years before oil was discovered in Northern Kenya and therefore did not involve Tullow in any way. The Governments of Kenya and Uganda have jointly commissioned a pipeline study for oil export which will look at a Northern and Southern route (the former largely follows LAPSSET) and we await the outcome of that study.

This is a response from the following companies: Tullow Oil
