Tullow awards subsea contract to WGK for TEN project
LONDON -- Wood Group Kenny (WGK) has been awarded an engineering services contract to support Tullow Ghana Limited and its partners through the execution phase of the Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme (TEN) project, offshore Ghana. WGK will provide subsea, umbilical, risers, flowlines (SURF) engineering services.
The Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme oil fields are situated in the Deepwater Tano area, offshore Ghana, approximately 30 km from the existing Jubilee field.
The TEN Project has been sanctioned by the partners and the Ghanaian government, and contracts have been awarded for the FPSO vessel, subsea hardware, risers, pipelines, umbilicals and for subsea installation.
WGK will provide Tullow with project engineering resources, specialist technical support and technical assurance services across the SURF implementation work scope through to first oil. As well as a core project team based in London, WGK resources will be provided across a range of subsea disciplines and at a number of fabrication sites including the U.S., Norway, Malaysia and Ghana, where Wood Group Ghana Ltd is already established.
The TEN fields lie in the Deepwater Tano block, around 60 km offshore Ghana. The reservoirs are spread over 800 sq km, and lie in water depths of between 1,000 and 1,800 m. Development of the TEN Project is being led by Tullow Oil, with partners Ghana National Petroleum Corporation, Kosmos Energy LLC, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation and PetroSA.
The TEN Development Plan was approved by the Government of Ghana in May 2013 and requires the drilling and completion of up to 24 development wells. These will be connected through subsea infrastructure to an FPSO vessel currently under construction in Singapore.
First oil from the TEN fields is scheduled for mid-2016, and the nominal production capacity of the FPSO is 80,000 bopd.
