Displaying items by tag: New Oil Boat for Ghana

#NewOilboat -A new floating production, storage and off-loading (FPSO) vessel, which will produce and store oil coming from Tullow Oil’ s Tweneboa-Enyenra-Ntomme (Ten) offshore oil fields, according to The Irish Times set off for Ghana last weekend.

The massive FPSO (for photo, click link to newspaper) has been under construction in Singapore since October 2013. The boat’s on-schedule departure is an important milestone for the Ten Project which is over 80 per cent complete and on track to start producing oil this July or August.

The FPSO has a nominal production capacity of 80,000 barrels of oil a day and a capacity of 1.7 million barrels. She is 350m long and can accommodate 120 people. The FPSO is expected to arrive in Ghanaian waters in March. She will be stationed above the Ten fields, around 60km from the coast of west Ghana.

Tullow has an interest of just over 47 per cent in the oilfield offshore Ghana.
