Tullow Oil is back on track to expand its flagship oilfields off Ghana's coast after a two-year drilling block due to a border dispute.

Tullow said it will resume drilling at the Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme (TEN) oilfields around the end of the year to lift production to full capacity of 80,000 barrels per day (bpd), following an international tribunal ruling on Saturday favouring Ghana in a dispute with its neighbour Ivory Coast.

The maritime border dispute with Ivory Coast meant Tullow had been unable to drill in the TEN area, which is close to Ivorian waters, since March 2015, although it was able to bring the fields onstream in 2016.
