Tullow's first onshore exploration well in Kenya, Ngamia-1, discovered more than 100 metres of net oil pay.

Tullow oil has struck oil again, this time at its Twiga South-1 block in the Lokichar basin. The exploration firm says it encountered 30 meters of net oil pay after digging 3,250 meters at the onshore well.

This is Tullow's second oil discovery after Ngamia 1 and will conduct a series of tests on the discovery in the next 4 to 6 weeks.
