British oil company, Tullow has announced resumption of production from Ghana’s Jubilee oil field after works on a gas compressor was completed.
Gas export from the Jubilee field to the Ghana Gas onshore processing plant was temporarily halted, cutting supply to the Ghana Gas Company.
[contextly_sidebar id=”w2tKugwFn18UnE8PedNMP2KqnAmZg1tj”]This according industry players, worsened the power situation in the country because there was not enough gas to power the energy plants.
Accordingly, the company in a statement said that oil production has returned to previous rates.
Tullow Oil suspended gas export from the Jubilee field to the Ghana Gas plant at Atuabo since July 3, due to technical issues with gas compression systems on the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah.
In a statement Tullow Oil also stated that Oil production at the field is currently constrained to approximately 65,000 barrels per day (bopd) and is under constant review, but there is no effect on the field’s reservoir or resources.
Tullow was previously producing between 100 bopd and 110 bopd.
