Wood Group Kenny (WGK) has been awarded an engineering services contract to support Tullow Ghana and its partners through the execution phase of the Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme (TEN) project, offshore Ghana.
WGK will provide subsea, umbilical, risers, and flowlines (SURF) engineering services. The Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme oil fields are in the deep water Tano area, about 30km from the producing Jubilee field.
The TEN Project has been sanctioned by the partners and the Ghanaian government, and contracts have been awarded for the floating, production, storage and offloading (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 US, Norway, Malaysia and Ghana, where Wood Group Ghana Ltd is already established.
The TEN fields lie in the deep water Tano block, around 60 kilometres offshore Ghana. The reservoirs are spread over 800sq km, and lie in 1000-1800m water depth. 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 80,000bo/d.
