Jubilee Partners Plan Next Phase of Remediation

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

 The partners on the Jubilee field in Ghana, along with the Ghanaian government, are planning the next phase of remediation which will involve stabilizing the turret bearing.

Tullow Oil, the operator of the Jubilee field, estimates this will require a shut down of approximately five to eight weeks in late 2017. However, the partnership continues to evaluate options to minimize downtime.

Planning for the rotation of the vessel to its optimal heading and the installation of a deep-water catenary anchor leg mooring (CALM) buoy is currently ongoing and these work programs are expected to occur in 2018 and 2019, respectively, subject to final partnership and government approval.

The partnership is focused on minimizing field downtime, and the operator anticipates that the total shutdown duration for stabilization, rotation and CALM buoy installation is not expected to exceed 12 weeks as previously forecast by the operator.
