Oil giant Tullow has revealed disappointing results from the Teak-4A appraisal well in the West Cape Three Points Block, offshore Ghana.
In a short statement, the group said that Teak-4A, in which it is a 26.396% parter, was drilled by operator Kosmos Energy and was drilled to a total depth of 2,850m to target the stratigraphic extension of the Teak discovery area.
The well was said to have encountered "thin, non-commercial reservoirs" and is, in turn, being plugged and abandoned.
