State to audit Tullow Oil spending

The State will audit Tullow Oil’s spending on its oil project amid a review of a plan submitted by the British firm on plans to develop the petroleum deposits found in
Turkana more than a decade ago.
Mohamed Liban, Petroleum Principal Secretary, said the new audit by an independent consultant will cover costs Tullow incurred on blocks 10BB and 13T from 2021 until the end of the 2024 calendar year as well as Early Oil Pilot Scheme (EOPS) from 2021 to the end of 2023. “In so doing, the consultant will evaluate whether the expenditures are in line with contractual obligations and if the claimed costs are entitled to cost recovery,” the official said.
Similar independent cost recovery audits for blocks 10BB and 13T for 2010-2016, 2017-2018, 2019-2020, and EOPS for 2017-2020 have been run.
