Board Change at Tullow

Tullow Oil plc announces that Dorothy Thompson CBE, Non-Executive Chair, has decided to step down from Tullow’s Board. A search process to find a new Chair has been launched and is expected to conclude towards the end of the summer. Dorothy will remain Chair of Tullow until the new Chair is appointed and an appropriate handover has taken place.

Dorothy Thompson, CBE, Non-Executive Chair of Tullow Oil plc, commented today:

“My time with Tullow has been interesting and challenging and Tullow is now well positioned for a positive and sustainable future. With the refinancing successfully concluded through our recent bond issue and with a new business plan in place which is progressing well under Rahul Dhir’s capable leadership, I have decided that this is the right time to step back from Tullow and to move to other opportunities. I wish the Board and staff all good fortune and will remain a keen observer of Tullow as it executes its new strategy.”
