Ghana's second floating production, storage and off-loading (FPSO) vessel built for oil production arrived in Ghana today March 3, 2016.

Christened FPSO Prof John Evans Atta Mills, the vessel  is expected to start producing oil from the TEN fields by July/August 2016, according to a statement from Tullow Ghana.

“The FPSO began its voyage from Singapore to Ghana on 23rd January 2016 with almost zero “carry over”, meaning only 2,000 man hours of work remained to be completed during the voyage. This is a very significant industry achievement. The FPSO will move directly to the installation phase when it arrives on station,” the statement added.

“This will be followed by the hook-up of subsea facilities via flowlines, risers and control umbilicals, much of which has already been pre-installed. In addition, 6 wells have already been completed, and the completion of the remaining wells is on schedule. The integrated facilities will undergo final commissioning and testing during the second quarter of this year before first oil,” the statement said.

The vessel has an  oil storage capacity of 1.7 million barrels and a gas capacity and water injection capacity of 170million standard cubic feet daily and 120,000 barrels water daily respectively. The  new floating vessel, will be for the Tweneboa-Enyenra-Ntomme (TEN)  project.

Tullow said it is proud of the safe arrival of vessel, adding that  "its partners remain at the forefront of unlocking Ghana’s oil resources for the mutual benefit of the Nation and Shared Prosperity."

“We are extremely pleased and proud that Ghana’s second FPSO has arrived safely here on our shores. It is a source of pride to note that many of the component parts of both the FPSO and the subsea infrastructure were built and supplied by Ghanaian companies.
