The offshore oil and gas TEN Project off Ghana is nearing completion. This month, four subsea manifolds and two riser bases, fabricated by FMC Technologies in Houston, were loaded out onto a transport vessel on their way to Ghana to be installed on the seabed in the TEN fields.
Tullow’s production and development projects in West Africa include the company’s flagship operated asset, the Jubilee field in Ghana, the TEN Project which is the group’s second development in Ghana and a portfolio of non-operated production assets in five further countries across the region.
The TEN Project will produce up to 80,000 barrels of oil per day, and is on track and on budget for first oil in mid-2016.
In June, the project celebrated another milestone when the turret was lifted into FPSO. The TEN FPSO is currently under construction in the JSL Shipyard in Singapore and the turret is one of the most significant modules to be installed. Weighing approximately 3055 tons, the turret is currently the biggest external turret in the world.
