Tullow detects issue with turret on Jubilee FPSO

Tullow Oil, an independent oil exploration and production company, has identified a potential issue on the FPSO operating on the Jubilee field, offshore Ghana. 

Tullow Oil has informed the Government of Ghana and its partners of a change to operating procedures at the Jubilee field FPSO.

Namely, following a recent inspection of the turret area of the Jubilee Floating Production Storage and Offtake vessel (FPSO) Kwame Nkrumah, by Sofec, the original turret manufacturer, a potential issue was identified with the turret bearing.

Tullow said that, as a precautionary measure, additional operating procedures to monitor the turret bearing and reduce the degree of rotation of the vessel were being put in place.

According to Tullow, Sofec will now undertake further offshore examinations and Tullow will work with Sofec to determine what further measures will be required.

Tullow also said that oil production and gas export was continuing as normal.

During the first half of 2015, average production from the field was 105,000 bopd.

The Jubilee field was discovered in 2007 and production started in late 2010.

Tullow is the operator of the field with 35.48% interest. Tullow’s partners are Kosmos and Anadarko, each with 24.08% interest, and GNPC and Petro SA with 13.64% and 2.73% interest, respectively.
