Tullow Spots Jubilee FPSO Turret Issue

UK-listed oil and gas player Tullow informed that potential problem has been identified following a recent inspection of the turret area of the Jubilee floating production storage and offtake vessel (FPSO) Kwame Nkrumah.

The FPSO is moored in approximately 1,100 meters water depth on the Jubilee field, offshore Ghana.

According to Tullow, SOFEC, the original turret manufacturer, spotted a potential issue with the turret bearing.

The Government of Ghana and Tullow’s partners have been notified of a change to operating procedures at the Jubilee field FPSO.

Furthermore, Tullow said that as a precautionary measure, additional operating procedures to monitor the turret bearing and reduce the degree of rotation of the vessel are being put in place.

“SOFEC will now undertake further offshore examinations and Tullow will work with SOFEC to determine what further measures will be required. Oil production and gas export is continuing as normal,” the company added in its operational update on Thursday.
