TULLOW AND PARTNERS START UP JUBILEE SOUTH EAST PROJECT OFFSHORE GHANA
Tullow, alongside its joint venture partners Kosmos Energy, Ghana National Petroleum Corporation, Petro SA and Jubilee Oil Holdings, announced the successful start-up of the Jubilee South East (JSE) Project, offshore Ghana. The first JSE production well has been brought onstream and a further two producers and one water injector are expected onstream this year to help sustain gross Jubilee production over 100,000 bopd. Tullow and its partners plan to maintain this increased level of production at Jubilee over the next few years through an ongoing infill drilling programme. The partnership has identified multiple future drilling locations and is focused on high-grading these opportunities to further extend the plateau and realise the full potential of the significant Jubilee resource base.
Tullow and its partners have invested c.$1 billion over the last three years on the JSE Project to drill wells and install the infrastructure needed to bring previously undeveloped reserves to production. The project has advanced the use of local suppliers and the majority of the complex offshore infrastructure has been fabricated by local companies in Ghana, with more than 90% local workforce. This demonstrates the evolution of the Ghanaian supplier base that can now support substantial elements of its oil and gas industry and is testament to Tullow and its partners’ commitment to developing local capacity.
