The floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, Prof. John Evans Atta Mills, which will produce and store oil from Ghana’s Tweneboa-Enyenra-Ntomme (TEN) offshore oil fields, has sailed away from Singapore following it's conversion. The vessel departed the Tuas shipyard in Singapore on Saturday 23 January and her voyage to Ghana will see her sail westward across the Indian Ocean before rounding the southern tip of Africa and sailing up the West African coast.
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.
