Africa-focused oil and gas company Tower Resources posted a full-year loss as it continued to develop its Thali prospect offshore Cameroon. Pre-tax losses for the year through December amounted to $2.7m, compared to losses of $3.8m on-year. After some delays, Tower Resources had been hoping to drill the NJOM-3 well at Thali this year, but was then hit by the Covid-19 crisis. The company said it was not yet in a position to conclude a rig contract or other service contracts for drilling the well. It had notified authorities in Cameroon of a state of force majeure. 'No-one can be certain of the progression of the pandemic, the associated restrictions, or a potential second wave,' Tower Resources said. 'However, with the goodwill and support of all involved, we expect that we will restart the drilling preparations as soon as possible.' At 9:09am: (LON:TRP) Tower Resources PLC share price was -0.04p at 0.38p
