Tullow Ghana to shut down FPSO Kwame Nkrumah

The FPSO Kwame Nkrumah will be closed down on Sunday, March 20, 2016 for a “planned maintenance work,” an official statement has announced.

The FPSO Kwame Nkrumah will be out of operation for 14 days, according to a statement from the Jubilee Partners led by Tullow Ghana Limited.

It said the “shutdown is to allow for planned maintenance work to be undertaken on key equipment of the FPSO.

“This shutdown is essential to ensure the ongoing reliability and integrity of the FPSO. To ensure safety, and in line with standard industry practice, there will be no oil or gas production from the Jubilee Field during the 14 day period.”

“Our commitment is to adhere to international operational performance management standards to ensure the FPSO operates safely and efficiently at its optimal level,” the Managing Director of Tullow Ghana Limited, Mr Charles Darku said.

Tullow Ghana said “the planned shutdown will not impact the projected average production for the year.”

The last major planned maintenance shutdown was in September 2013.
