Gas compression problems limit oil production at Jubilee field offshore Ghana

Tullow Oil PLC reported oil production at Jubilee field offshore Ghana is constrained to 65,000 b/d due to technical issues with gas compression systems on the Kwame Nkrumah floating production, storage, and offloading vessel. First half production averaged 105,000 b/d (OGJ Online, July 1, 2015).

Gas exports to the Ghana gas plant at Atuabo has been suspended since July 3. Tullow expects “a further 3 weeks to reinstate gas export and full oil production.”

The company also said that there is “no effect” on the field’s reservoir or resources.

Tullow will provide an update on July 29 regarding its 2015 production forecast.
