rStill flushed with the success of its Pakistan venture, Tullow Oil gained a further 3.5p to a new peak of 70p. Eamonn Hughes of the Dublin stockbroker Riada (part of ABN Amro Hoare Govett) believes the Pakistani operations should be worth 77p a share. The rest of the group's exploration and production interests - in the UK, Syria, Senegal and the Czech Republic - he estimates could have a value of 20p a share.
