The facility will include for delivery 132,000 bpd of filtered, de-aerated seawater.
The TEN Development FPSO will be external turret moored in 1,000 to 1,800 metres water depth and operated by MODEC, on behalf of their client Tullow Ghana Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tullow Oil Plc. The FPSO will host multiple subsea tiebacks from three reservoirs (Tweneboa, Enyenra, Ntomme) in the Deep Water Tano block off of the coast of Ghana, West Africa.
