Oil and gas company Tullow Oil is working to increase production from two of its operated fields offshore Ghana towards the nameplate capacity of FPSOs operating on the respective fields.

Tullow is the operator of two fields located offshore Ghana, Jubilee and TEN. Tullow’s partner in both locations, U.S. oil company Kosmos Energy, said on Monday that new wells were brought online at both Jubilee and TEN during the third quarter of this year.

At Jubilee, production averaged approximately 94,300 barrels of oil per day (bopd) for the quarter. One new producer well at Jubilee was brought online in the third quarter, with a second expected in the fourth quarter. Production from these wells, together with enhancements to gas handling capacity, is expected to increase Jubilee production towards the FPSO nameplate capacity of 120,000 bopd, Kosmos said.

At TEN, production averaged approximately 62,600 bopd for the quarter. One new producer well at Ntomme came online in August. Kosmos said it expects this well to support current production levels of approximately 65,000 to 70,000 bopd through the end of the year when a second new production well is scheduled to be brought onstream to increase production towards the FPSO nameplate capacity.
