Tullow Oil Plc, a leading giant in the oil and gas industry has published the returns of its businesses for the first half of 2018. The company recorded a gross income of $905 million and a substantial profit margin of $521. In a conference held at London today, Chief Executive Officer of Tullow Oil, Paul McDade highlighted the success of the operational activities of the company so far in 2018. “Today’s results are further evidence of the progress that Tullow has made in the first half of 2018. With this firm financial foundation, we can concentrate on growth across our three core businesses. Over the next two years, we will increase production from our current assets in West Africa, progress two large onshore developments in East Africa and step up our search for material new oil fields in Africa and South America through a multi-year exploration campaign which will initially focus on Namibia and Guyana. There is much to look forward to for Tullow’s shareholders, host countries and staff.”
The occasion was also used to announce the official retirement of Mr. Aidan Heavey as Chairman of the company after founding Tullow Oil, Plc thirty two (32) years ago with his first operation in Senegal in West Africa. Since its inception, Tullow Oil has expanded across 45 countries globally to become the leading independent oil and gas exploration and production company with interests in 90 exploration and production licenses across 16 countries. On Mr. Aidan Heavey’s retirement, CEO, Paul McDade has this to say: “Aidan has dedicated his career to the African Oil & Gas industry. He founded Tullow 32 years ago as a small gas producer in Senegal and since then Tullow has had operations in 45 countries around the world including 20 countries in Africa. He has been a pioneer and an inspiration across Africa for decades, especially in Ghana, Uganda and Kenya. Aidan has also been a mentor to me for many years and I could not have wished for a better Chairman in my first years as CEO. Everyone at Tullow will miss Aidan and wishes him and his family all the very best for the future.”
