Outgoing Tullow Oil chief executive Aidan Heavey will look to take on new business interests in Africa as he moves on from the company after three "horrendous years" of turmoil for the oil sector.

Heavey told the Sunday Independent he would not join the board of any other companies, nor would he work for a company that competed with Tullow.

"I'm going to do some charity stuff, and I will do some business infrastructure investment projects in Africa," he said.

"Over the years I've helped some of the countries to bring in investment, I've helped bring in finance in countries, so I think I'll probably get more involved in that.

"The only company I'll be a director of is Tullow. But I will do other businesses... I'll take a bit of time but Africa is where I know best. I will never do anything that will compete with Tullow."
