The TEN Project’s four subsea manifolds and two riser bases were fabricated by FMC Technologies in Houston, USA. They were recently loaded out onto a transport vessel on their way to Ghana to be installed on the seabed in the TEN fields.
Operated by Tullow, the TEN Project is Ghana’s second major oil development. The project takes its name from the three offshore fields under development – Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme – which are situated in the Deepwater Tano block, around 60 kilometres offshore Western Ghana.
First oil is scheduled for mid-2016 with a facility capacity of around 80,000 barrels of oil per day expected to be reached in early 2017. The field will add significant high-margin production to Tullow’s portfolio.
