A new oil country
The Jubilee Unit Area covers part of the Deepwater Tano and West Cape Three Points licence areas. It lies in water depths of between 1,100 and 1,700 metres and covers an area of approximately 110 sq km.
Phase 1 development involves the completion of 17 wells comprising a combination of nine production wells which will be used to bring oil and gas from the underground reservoir to the surface, and six water and two gas injection wells which will be used to inject water and gas back into the reservoir for pressure maintenance and enhancing oil recovery.
The wells will be connected through a network of valves and pipelines to the 'Kwame Nkrumah', the FPSO permanently moored at the north of the Jubilee field.
1. Project overview
Building trust from discovery to first oil
First discovered in June 2007, Jubilee is a world-class oil field which will make Ghana a new oil producing country. At the time it was also the Group's largest ever discovery. The Jubilee field is approximately 60 km offshore Ghana and Phase 1 development involves the extraction of hydrocarbons from an underground reservoir located in deep water. With first oil expected in the fourth quarter of 2010, just 3.5 years after discovering the field, a new industry benchmark for deepwater development has been achieved. This would not have been possible without developing close partnerships with stakeholder groups and the ESIA played a significant role in achieving that.
