Tullow Ghana Limited has awarded two contracts for the TEN Project, located offshore Ghana at a water depth reaching up to 2,000 meters (6,562 feet), to Technip, leader of a consortium with Subsea7. Together, those two contracts have a combined value of approximately US$1.23 billion, with a Technip share of about US$730 million. The offshore installation is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2016.
Technip’s scope of work includes the:
engineering, fabrication and installation of 9 flexible risers(1), 3 flexible flowlines(2) and 12 flexible spools(3) totaling 48 kilometers (30 miles);
engineering, fabrication and installation of 33 kilometers (20.5 miles) of water injection and gas injection rigid flowlines;
installation of about 63 kilometers (39 miles) of static and dynamic umbilicals(4); and
engineering, pre-fabrication, final assembly and installation of 10 well rigid jumpers (5) and delivery of further 6 prefabricated rigid jumpers.
For the benefit of this project in ultra-deep water requiring technical innovation, Technip has mobilized its worldwide organization combining together know-how and various areas of expertise. Thus, Technip’s operating center in Paris, France, will execute this project with the support of the Group’s offices in Accra, Ghana. The flexible pipes will be fabricated at Technip’s Flexi France facility in Le Trait, France and the rigid flowlines at the Group’s spoolbase in Evanton, UK.
The TEN Field is located in the Deepwater Tano Contract Area, 60 kilometers (37 miles) off the coast of Ghana and approximately 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) west of the Tullow Operated Jubilee Field. Tullow Ghana Limited (a subsidiary of Tullow Oil plc) is Operator of the Deepwater Tano Contract Area with an interest of 47.175%. Other partner interests are Kosmos Energy (17%), Anadarko Petroleum (17%), Sabre Oil & Gas Holdings Ltd, a subsidiary of Petro SA (3.825%), and the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (15%).
