21st May 2019

Marriott Drilling Africa Limited (MDAL), a subsidiary within the Marriott Drilling Group, has recently completed a three year contract for a programme of oil exploration in Northern Kenya by Tullow Oil Kenya, a subsidiary of Tullow Oil plc.

Marriott utilised a new Drillmec 1000 HP conventional trailer mounted drilling unit and associated equipment package together with 225-man camp for this contract.

The rig build to programme was achieved in five months from the commitment by Tullow to the spud of the first well.

MDAL has established an office in Nairobi to support this contract and other operations in East Africa.
