Tullow Oil to abandon Ethiopian well

African-focused oil and gas miner Tullow says a well it drilled in Ethiopia had failed to find oil.

Tullow announced this morning that the well, referred to as the Tultule-1 wildcat well in the South Omo block onshore Ethipia, will be plugged and abandoned as a dry hole.

Tullow was the operator of this well with a 50pc interest along with partners Africa Oil (30pc) and Marathon (20pc).

The Irish-founded mining company added that the rig used on that site will now move to a different area of the country to drill another well.
