Tullow Oil is expected to start the drilling of a new production well at the Jubilee Oil Field in the Republic of Ghana in the second quarter of 2021.
Alongside the drilling of the new production well, there will be water injection to support the field, as well as one gas injection well at TEN which supports Ntomme-09 well which was drilled last year.
George Cazenove, who is in charge of Tullow’s Corporate Affairs & Communication, revealed this in an email to energynewsafrica.com.
Tullow, which is the lead operator of Ghana’s Jubilee Field in the Western Region in a press statement which gave updates about the company’s performance for 2020 and its plan for 2021, said: “A drilling rig is being mobilised to Ghana to commence operations in the second quarter of the year. The first new production well on Jubilee is forecast to be onstream in the third quarter.”
The statement added that “a new oil offloading system is being commissioned on Jubilee and is expected to be ready for a first lifting in February.”
