Gas exports to the Ghana gas plant at Atuabo were suspended July 3 due to technical issues with gas compression systems on the Kwame Nkrumah floating production, storage, and offloading vessel (OGJ Online, July 20, 2015). Gas exports resumed Aug. 3 and have increased to about 100 MMcfd.
Oil production from Tullow-operated Jubilee field during this year’s first half averaged 105,000 b/d. During work on the gas compressor in July, production had been constrained to 65,000 b/d.
On Aug. 12, Tullow also said the Spari-1 well on Suriname’s offshore Block 31 is being plugged. The well was drilled in 52 m of water to a total depth of 3,830 m, but found no significant hydrocarbon shows. Tullow holds 30% interest.
