Tullow hopeful as State moves to make decision on Turkana oil

Tullow Oil is now hoping the government will make a timely decision on the Turkana oil project, even as it pushes to secure a strategic partner by end of this year.

This, amid concerns that delays in approval of its Field Development Plan (FDP) by the government could impact a final investment decision.

The ministry is expected to make a decision on the FDP by the end of this month, according to earlier indications by Energy Cabinet Secretary Davies Chirchir, which will then be subjected to approvals by Cabinet and Parliament.
