Tullow and its joint venture partners on Blocks 10BB and 13T in Kenya, have submitted a letter to the Kenyan Ministry of Petroleum and Mining, to withdraw the notices of Force Majeure that were declared on May 15, 2020.

The lifting of Force Majeure notices has been facilitated by the improvement in COVID-19 pandemic restrictions worldwide and the resumption of local and international flights, allowing the restart of the various workstreams under the Project. The joint venture partners are also continuing their dialogue with the Government of Kenya to determine the best way forward for this strategic project, including discussions regarding how the incentives previously granted by the government to the Project shall be facilitated.
