The Jubilee unit area is approximately 60 km offshore Ghana. 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 extracting hydrocarbons from an underground reservoir located in deepwater in the Jubilee field. Following First Oil at the end of 2010, gross production has increased to over 70,000 bopd and plateau production of 120,000 bopd is expected to be reached in the third quarter of 2011. 17 development wells have been drilled to date.
"Immediately following the Macondo incident we carried out a series of reviews and independent audits across our drilling operations. These reviews found no major flaws in our operations, and confirmed that we had robust policies and procedures and were underpinning these with appropriate risk and change management."
