Tullow Disappoints With No Commercial Oil In Offshore Ghana Well

London-listed oil exploration and production company Tullow Oil PLC (>> Tullow Oil plc) disappointed investors Friday as its partner in an offshore Ghana project reported negative results from an appraisal well.

The operator, Kosmos Energy Ltd. (>> Kosmos Energy Ltd), announced late Thursday it is plugging and abandoning the Teak-4A well, after failing to find commercial reservoirs. The well is located in the West Cape Three Points Block.

Tullow owns a 26% stake in the West Cape Three Points Block, while Kosmos and Anadarko Petroleum Corp. (APC) each have a 31% interest and Sabre Oil & Gas Holdings Ltd. holds 2%. Ghana National Petroleum Corp. has a 10 percent carried interest in the project.

"Tullow's struggling to live up to its share price at the moment," said Stuart Joyner, head of oil and gas at Investec Securities. "It's had some successes in Kenya, but in Ghana, which is the core area for the company, it's been mixed."

At 0739 GMT, shares in Tullow Oil were down 1.7%, or 26 pence, at 1531 pence, briefly making it one of the biggest decliners among the FTSE-100 index in early trade. The broader FTSE-100 index was down 0.2%.
