Kenyans to Wait Longer for Yields From Turkana Oil Project

British oil explorer Tullow, has been given another 15 months for the exploration phase of the Turkana oil project. This will have an impact on production timelines and will extend the long-awaited final investment decision. Tullow was at loggerheads with the Kenyan government over its decision to sell its stake in the project but has since decided to cancel that plan. The further extension will impact the 2021 delivery date, which is now envisaged for 2025.
