“With the announcement of our Teranga-1 result today, we continue our exploration success in opening a world-class basin offshoreMauritania and Senegal. We completed our appraisal drilling of the Tortue West discovery and delineated a world-class LNG resource with fewer wells than anticipated. The TEN project is over 90% complete and is on schedule to produce first oil in the third quarter of 2016. Our rich opportunity set coupled with our financial strength leaves us well positioned to capitalise on the opportunities ahead of us.”
