Tullow Oil has awarded a contract to Petrofac to provide operations services for the Jubilee Development project in Ghana.

Under the contract, Petrofac will be responsible for operations, maintenance, and technical support services for Tullow Oil’s Kwame Nkrumah (KNK) floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.

Installed at a water depth of approximately 1,100m on the Jubilee field, the FPSO is designed to process over 120,000 barrels of oil per day, and inject more than 230,000 barrels of water per day and 160 million standard cubic feet per day of produced gas.

Petrofac Asset Solutions business chief operating officer Nick Shorten said: “I’m delighted that we are continuing to grow our presence in Africa, with valued long-term partner Tullow Oil. We bring our considerable global FPSO experience to Ghana, also putting us in a good position to support other similar facilities in the region.

“Petrofac has been in North Africa for more than two decades and now we are building our presence across the continent, growing local jobs, developing local skills, and collaborating with local partners.”

The contract follows recent orders for Petrofac to decommission seven subsea wells in Mauritania.

The contract includes the project management, engineering, planning, and plugging and abandonment (P&A) of seven wells on Tullow Oil’s Banda and Tiof fields.

Tullow CEO Rahul Dhir said: “This new partnership with Petrofac will leverage Petrofac’s years of experience in operating onshore and offshore facilities and will deliver improved operations on KNK.

“In particular, Petrofac’s experience in workforce training will be key in helping Tullow develop Ghanaian talent in leadership roles in the management of Ghana’s offshore facilities.”

Earlier this year, Petrofac announced that it had received two contracts from India’s Cairn Oil & Gas, Vedanta.
