Tim O’Hanlon is from Ireland. As a young Reservoir Engineer fresh from Imperial College London, he joined Irish start-up Tullow Oil in the mid 1980’s. He has been with this very exciting and ambitious company ever since, living in Senegal for many years.

More recently as Vice President African Business, (or Tullow’s Monsieur Afrique!) he has helped to drive Tullow’s rapid expansion on the Mother Continent. Whether it is targeting company acquisitions in Africa, chasing new ventures, or mending fences in the many African countries where Tullow operates, you can be sure that Tim is never far from the action. But you are far more likely to bump into Tim in one of Africa’s 54 capitals than anywhere close to Tullow’s London HQ!

Mr. Maxted served as chief executive officer for three years and led all aspects of the business to create a world-class organization before choosing to return to exploration. Before co-founding Kosmos in 2003, he was senior vice president of exploration for Triton Energy, where he led a series of discoveries offshore Equatorial Guinea. He also managed the discovery of several large gas/condensate fields by Carigali-Triton Operating Company in the Malaysia-Thailand Joint Development Area and the discovery and confirmation of Colombia’s giant Cusiana and Cupiagua oil fields. Following the sale of Triton to Amerada Hess Corporation (now Hess Corporation), Mr. Maxted oversaw continued Hess exploration success in Equatorial Guinea as senior vice president of global exploration and new ventures. He also led the company’s Gulf of Mexico deepwater strategy. Prior to its recent acquisition, Mr. Maxted was a member of the board of directors of Broad Oak Energy, a company that focuses on improving recovery from mature U.S. onshore oil and gas producing regions. He holds a master’s degree in organic geochemistry and petrology from the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and a bachelor of science in geology from the University of Sheffield.
