Ghana's Jubilee field sets oil production record

Jubilee field offshore Ghana was producing 110,000 b/d of oil at the end of 2012 and recently set a new record of 112,500 b/d following two acid stimulations and the start-up of two new Phase 1A wells, said Anadarko Petroleum Corp.

The field, operated by Tullow Oil PLC, averaged more than 88,000 b/d in the last quarter of 2012, Anadarko said. Jubilee came on production in November 2010.

The Tullow-operated partnership that holds the Deepwater Tano block submitted a development plan for the Tweneboa, Enyenra, and Ntomme field complex northwest of Jubilee to Ghana’s government in the 2012 fourth quarter.

The Sapele exploratory well is drilling southwest of the Jubilee Unit, and results are expected in the first quarter of 2013, Anadarko said. Appraisal work on the Wawa discovery is also planned for 2013 (OGJ Online, July 18, 2012).

Meanwhile, the Okure-1 exploratory well was deemed noncommercial and has been plugged and abandoned.
