Tullow arrangements to penetrate two extra Stage 1A wells and the first of these, J-37, has started boring. In light of the execution of the Celebration field year to date and the choice to have an arranged one week shutdown in the second 50% of 2015, Tullow has expanded its entire year 2015 normal working interest generation direction for the field to 103,000 bopd (36,500 bopd net).
