The TEN oil field, the nation's second largest oil field, will produce 23, 000 barrels of oil daily till the end of the year. However, Production will gradually increase as more wells are brought on board in the coming weeks to 80,000 barrels per day.

The $4.8 billion project is expected to produce oil for at least 25 years, which will mean about 300 million barrels of oil is expected.

"I believe that current setbacks in the world (oil) market are temporary and we'll see a recovery soon that will give a fair price to producers," president Mahama said as he opened the valve. "Its been a long journey but a fruitful one."

The Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme (TEN) project showcase is a joint-venture partnership between Tullow, Kosmos Energy, Anadarko Petroleum, Petro SA and the  GNPC.
