Tullow Oil has announced that the Gharabi-1 well, located in Block 6 offshore Mauritania, was unsuccessful and has been plugged and abandoned.

The well, drilled by the Maersk Deliverer in water depths of 1,787 metres to a total depth of 4,433 metres, intersected poorly developed water-bearing reservoirs.

Gharabi-1 was drilled by the Operator Petronas to meet a commitment on the block and the result has no impact on Tullow's future plans for its Mauritanian acreage.

In Block 6, Tullow (22.4%) is partnered by Petronas (72.6% operator) and Roc Oil (5%).
