The other partners Kosmos Energy holds 17 per cent share, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation 17 per cent, Ghana National Petroleum Corporation 15 per cent and PetroSA also with a stake of 3.815 per cent.

The project derives its name from the three fields, Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme (TEN), which lie around 60 kilometres off the coast of the Western Region, Ghana.

The full field development will consist of 24 wells in total – a mixture of water injection, gas injection and production wells.

At start-up, 10 wells will be required and these have already been drilled.

FPSO John Evans Atta Mills has been anchored over the fields with a significant amount of subsea production equipment installed on the seabed.

TEN is expected to produce about 300 million barrels of oil equivalent (mmboe) over a 20 year period, 80 per cent of which is oil and 20 per cent gas. The field will produce 80,000 barrels of oil and 180mm scf of gas per day when it reaches full production.
