Tullow’s Emekuya-1 well in Block 13T of northern Kenya has hit oil. The well encountered approximately 245 ft of net pay in two zones, the company said. Situated 1.5 miles north of the successful Etom-2 well, Emekuya-1 drilled a fault block on the flank of the Greater Etom structure and reached a total measured depth of 4,448 ft. The well penetrated reservoir-quality Miocene sandstones that correlate to those in Etom‑2, Tullow said. The company operates and holds a 50% interest in Blocks 13T and 10BB, with Africa Oil and Maersk Oil each holding 25% stakes.
