Tullow Withdraws From Congolese Oil Block, Minister Says

By Franz Wild

Feb. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Tullow Oil Plc, the U.K. producer with the most exploration licenses in Africa, withdrew from an exploration area in the Congo and may lose the rights to a second, said Hydrocarbons Minister Lambert Mende.

The London-based company relinquished its stake in Block I of the Albertine Basin on Congo's eastern border after a dispute with the government, Mende said yesterday in an interview in the capital, Kinshasa. Tullow and Canadian partner Heritage Oil Corp. may lose the rights to Block II if they don't propose a new production-sharing-agreement soon.

``We hope that they won't delay too much as we do want to exploit our riches,'' Mende said. ``We won't wait eternally.''

Congo, a central African nation the size of Western Europe, is rebuilding an economy shattered by decades of misrule by former dictator Mobutu Sese Seko and two civil wars between 1996 and 2003. The country has attracted increased investment from companies including BHP Billiton Ltd. and Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. as stability has improved after the first democratic elections in four decades in 2006.

Tullow and Heritage in September accepted a reduction in their shares of the two oil blocks after Mende said a July 2006 contract, signed with Congo's previous government, was irregular. Tullow said it was valid and legally binding and offered to double its signing bonus. It relinquished the block last month.

``It's voluntarily that Tullow withdrew,'' Mende said.

Tullow's Vice President for African Business Tim O'Hanlon didn't immediately respond to messages left at his office and on his mobile phone.

Since Tullow's withdrawal, Block I has been awarded to Divine Inspiration, a South African company, and PetroSA, South Africa's state oil company, which share a 51 percent stake. Spain-based H Oil controls 37 percent, with state-owned Cohydro and two ``minor'' Congolese partners owning the rest, Mende said.

Uganda: Govt, Tullow Sign Oil Production Pact

The Government has signed an agreement with a British Oil company, Tullow Uganda, to build a refinery in the oil rich Albert region.

The company is expected to start the infrastructure development for the refinery early next year.

"Tullow is going to set the topping plant (mini-refinery) at its own cost and then recover the money from oil revenue," said the commissioner for petroleum exploration and production, Reuben Kashambuzi.

He said Tullow was evaluating the bids from companies interested in building the plant, adding that only international firms had applied.

Addressing journalists yesterday, Kashambuzi said Tullow intended to build a 4,000-barrel-a-day mini-refinery and a 50MW power plant when it begins producing oil next year.

He was, however, tight-lipped on how the oil revenue would be shared between the company and the country.

"Unfortunately, we have been prevented from giving you that document because it has been classified as confidential," Kashambuzi said.

"But what I can tell you is that the agreement has been made in such a way that the Government has not been cheated. The interest of the country has been taken care of."

The early production will basically be for local consumption. It will cover the region of Kaiso-Tonya area, Block 2 and parts of Lake Albert.

Kashambuzi said early oil production was necessary to establish the level of viability and to access diesel, kerosene and aviation fuel.

The production is set to start in the last quarter of 2009. The production system will have a separation plant, water injection facilities, a crude topping unit to produce petroleum distillates and heavy fuel oil products and storage facilities.

At the start-up, the well development programme will consist of six wells with flowlines.

Kashambuzi said the project has been designed to produce about 4,000 barrels per day of heavy fuel oil and petroleum products.

The company will also set up a power plant to run on heavy fuel oil, with capacity to supply the plant and the neighbouring area.

Kashambuzi said the early production would also enable the Government to begin studying the behaviour of reservoirs that will help in the design of the diesel refinery.

But the company is yet to receive approval from the National Environmental Authority (NEMA) for the plant.

NEMA boss Arymanya Mugisha said the authority would hold a public hearing in Hoima district on July 29, which will form the basis of its decision.
