Kosmos Energy informed that Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme (TEN) project start-up, offshore Ghana, is expected “shortly”.
The project is 99% complete with eight of the eleven previously drilled wells now completed. The project is expected to deliver first oil shortly, the company said.
Hook-up and commissioning of the FPSO, connecting the pre-drilled wells to the vessel via the subsea infrastructure, is nearing completion.
According to the guidance from the field operator, Tullow Oil, average annualized production from TEN in 2016 is expected to be approximately 23,000 bopd gross during the year, which equates to an average of approximately 55,000 bopd while it is online in 2016.
Associated gas production at TEN is expected to be re-injected into the Ntomme reservoir gas cap until export begins. Gas export was planned to start 12 months after the field start up, with the Tweneboa gas reservoir coming on stream 12 months later.
In addition, Kosmos informed that the plans to accelerate gas export are currently under evaluation as the fabrication of the gas export facilities has been completed early and can be installed by year end.
