Tullow says among other things that it is running two well completions and starting work on a third; installing four subsea christmas trees; completing fabrication of anchor piles for the FPSO, ahead of the offshore installation campaign which started earlier this month; and transportation of specialist subsea manifolds and umbilicals, now in transit from the US.
During the mid-year economic review in Parliament July 21, 2015, the Minister of Finance, Seth Terkper said, “I am pleased to inform you that the TEN Fields Development is 57 per cent complete. The project is on course to meet the deadline in gas supply and is expected to bring on stream additional gas and crude oil supplies in the second half of 2016.”
Tullow also indicated that conversion work on the TEN FPSO continues at the Jurong Shipyard in Singapore.
“All major modules are installed and integration works are underway. A naming ceremony is due to be held in September with the vessel set to sail for Ghana around year-end,” the company said.
