LONDON– Ghana’s government has formally approved the development plan for the deep offshore Tweneboa-Enyenra-Ntomme fields (TEN) project.
TEN is in the Deepwater Tano contract area, 60 km (37 mi) off the coast of Ghana and around 30 km (19 mi) west of theJubilee field. Operator Tullow Oil expects to deliver first oil in 2016, and peak at 80,000 b/d.
Development involves drilling and completion of up to 24 wells connected via subsea infrastructure to an FPSO moored in 1,500 m (4,921 ft) of water.
Design work on the production facilities started in 2011. Major contracts can now be finalized and awarded, and the partners including Kosmos Energy, Anadarko, Sabre Oil & Gas and GNPC, have committed to use the project to expand Ghana’s local fabrication capability and supply chain capability.
