Drilling is not expected to recommence on the TEN field until after the resolution of the Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana border dispute through the ITLOS tribunal whose decision is expected in late 2017,” according to Tullow’s trading and operational update report.

The ongoing dispute is digging a huge hole in the revenues of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) in respect to its exploration and equity financing.

A Public Interest Accountability Committee (PIAC) report shows that between January and June last year, the GNPC spent $2.11 million on the dispute ongoing in the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, representing 25% of the company’s total allocation for exploration and equity financing for the year.

Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer of Tullow Oil PLC, Aiden Heavy said the Ten Oil Fields will start a daily production of 23,000 barrels in the next six weeks.
