Tullow restarts gas export from Jubilee

Tullow Oil, an independent oil exploration and production company, has resumed gas exports from the Jubilee field, offshore Ghana, ahead of the mid-August forecast. 

Namely, gas export from the Jubilee Field to the Ghana Gas plant at Atuabo was suspended since July 2015 due to technical issues with gas compression systems on the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah. Oil production was constrained to approximately 65,000 bopd, but there was no effect on the field’s reservoir or resources.

Following the completion of work on the gas compressor on the FPSO, the production has resumed. According to Tullow, gas export restarted on August 3, 2015 and has steadily increased to around 100 mmscfd. In addition, oil production has consequently increased and has now returned to previous rates.

Aidan Heavey, Tullow CEO, said: “Tullow continues to make good progress in 2015 having reset the business and with continued emphasis on managing costs, capital expenditure and the balance sheet.

“We are also focused on operational efficiency and the Jubilee compressor issue has been resolved ahead of schedule. With production back to normal at Jubilee, we expect to meet our full year production guidance.”
