A key milestone of the TEN Project was recently reached when the turret was lifted into the floating, production, storage and offtake (FPSO) vessel. The TEN Project is Tullow’s second major operated deepwater development in Ghana which will produce up to 80,000 barrels of oil per day.
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 tonnes, the turret is currently the biggest external turret in the world.
The TEN Project is now 60% complete and remains on track and on budget for first oil in mid-2016.
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.
