Marsabit - Daily Nation reports Tullow Oil Plc has suspended exploration of its third well in Marsabit County after failing to find oil some 4,255 metres below the surface.

The company has announced that drilling on Paipai-1 within block 10A has been temporary closed as further evaluation options are carried out to determine its suitability. 

In a statement, Tullow’s exploration director Angus McCoss said they were unable to recover the hydrocarbons encountered whilst drilling, the well needs additional assessment.
