Tullow Oil’s northern Kenya partner, Africa Oil, has found oil and gas at the Ngamia-2 well, the British company announced on Tuesday.

“The success of the Ngamia-2 exploratory appraisal well builds on our major basin opening discovery well, Ngamia-1,” said Tullow exploration director Angus McCoss.

Tullow holds a 50% operating interest in northern Kenya Blocks 10BB and 13T.

Flow rates at the Agete-1 well were tested at 500 bpd.
