FPSO Atta Mills Shut Down

The TEN (Tweneboa, Ntomme and Enyenra) Partners, in consultation with the Government of Ghana, the Ministry of Energy and the Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC), has agreed to a shutdown of the TEN FPSO, Professor John Evans Atta Mills (JEAM).

The routine shutdown began on Monday, 22 April 2019, a statement from Tullow Ghana Limited said.

It is intended to enable the completion of outstanding work scopes from the project phase.

In addition, the Operator, Tullow Ghana Limited, will carry out essential maintenance works consistent with the facility’s design specification, to ensure ongoing reliability of the production process.

The shutdown is projected to last for approximately two weeks and, according to Tullow, has been adequately planned to avoid any interruption of gas supply to the Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC), the statement added.

The TEN Partners said they appreciate the collaboration with various agencies and the government to ensure that this scope of work is carried out successfully.
