Jubilee field subsea system ordered

OGJ Production Editor

HOUSTON, June 17 -- The Jubilee integrated project team placed an order with FMC Technologies Inc. for designing and manufacturing a subsea production system for the Jubilee deepwater development in 4,000-5,100 ft of water off Ghana.

The Jubilee integrated project team consists of Kosmos Energy Inc. (technical operator), Anadarko Petroleum Corp., and Tullow Oil & Gas PLC (unit operator).

The Jubilee discovery well, Mahogany-1, found 312 ft of net pay in Cretaceous sandstone.

Appraisal wells Mahogany-2 and Mahogany-3 on the West Cape Three Points block and wells Hyedua-1 and Hyedua-2 on the adjacent Deepwater Tano block delineated the discovery.

Kosmos says drillstem tests of the Mahogany-2 and Hyedua-2 wells indicated individual wells could produce more than 20,000 bo/d.

Kosmos and its partners plan a fast-track development of Jubilee, targeting first production for 2010 with the first phase tapping about 300 million bbl of oil (OGJ Online, June 12, 2009).

FMC will supply 19 enhanced horizontal subsea trees, 5 production manifolds, 3 injection manifolds, a pair of riser bases, and associated control systems, with subsea equipment deliveries scheduled to begin in 3 months.

FMC expects to realize $210 million from the order.

Production will flow to a leased turret-moored floating production, storage, and offloading vessel, owned and operated by Modec Inc. The lease is for 7 years with 13 1-year options.

Facilities on the FPSO are designed to handle 120,000 bo/d oil and 160 MMcfd of gas, as well as to inject 230,000 bw/d. The FPSO, currently being converted from a very large crude carrier, will have 1.6 million bbl of storage capacity.

Operator Kosmos holds a 30.875% in the West Cape Three Points block. Other interest owners include Anadarko 30.875%, Tullow 22.896%, Ghana National Petroleum Corp. 10%, EO Group 3.5%, and Sabre Oil & Gas Ltd. 1.854%.

Tullow is the operator of the Deepwater Tano block and holds a 49.95% interest. Other interest owners are Kosmos 18%, Anadarko 18%, Ghana National Petroleum Corp. 10%, and Sabre Oil & Gas Ltd. 4.05%.
