FPSO Fault Halts Jubilee Gas Export

Tullow Oil plc announces that gas export from the Jubilee Field to the Ghana Gas plant at Atuabo has been suspended since 3 July 2015 due to technical issues with gas compression systems on the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah and is expected to resume by mid-August.

Oil production is currently constrained to approximately 65,000 bopd and is under constant review but there is no effect on the Field’s reservoir or resources, the company said.

Tullow has mobilised a team of experts to rectify the fault within the gas compression system and estimates that it will take approximately a further three weeks to reinstate gas export and full oil production.

Tullow will review its 2015 production forecast for Jubilee and provide an update on progress at its Half Year Results on 29 July, the company added.
