Tullow suspends gas export from Jubilee, curbs oil production

Tullow suspends gas export from JubileeTullow Oil plc has announced that gas export from the Jubilee Field to the Ghana Gas plant at Atuabo has been suspended since July 3, 2015 due to technical issues with gas compression systems on the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah. 

According to Tullow, the gas export is expected to resume by mid-August. Oil production is currently constrained to approximately 65,000 bopd and is under constant review but there is no effect on the field’s reservoir or resources.

Tullow says it has mobilised a team of experts to rectify the fault within the gas compression system and estimates that it will take approximately a further 3 weeks to reinstate gas export and full oil production.

The company notes it will review its 2015 production forecast for Jubilee and provide an update on progress at its half yearly results on July 29, 2015.
