Final EIS – Jubilee field

Last updated: 05 Jul 2011

Environmental Impact Assessment for Jubilee Field Phase 1 Development Project

Tullow Ghana Limited (Tullow) and its joint venture partners Kosmos Ghana HC (Kosmos), Anadarko WCTP Company, Sabre Oil and Gas, the EO Group, and the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), known as the Jubilee Joint Venture, are proposing to develop hydrocarbon resources within the Jubilee Field, an oil and gas reserve located offshore Ghana. The field is located approximately 60 km from the nearest coast and lies in deep water (1,100 to 1,700m), straddling two oil concession blocks (see right).

Under the Ghana Environmental Assessment Regulations LI 1652 1999, Tullow and partners are required to submit an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) describing the project and providing an assessment of the potential impacts from the proposals and the proposed measures to be taken to manage these impacts.

The Final EIS is available here to be downloaded in a series of PDF documents.

Development of the Jubilee Field will be undertaken in phases with potential future phases depending on the success of Phase 1. Phase 1 would consist of subsea oil and gas production wells connected to a Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessel (FPSO) permanently moored in the Jubilee Field. The processed crude oil would be stored in the FPSO storage tanks and offloaded to oil tanker vessels for delivery to international markets approximately every 7 to 10 days.

Well completions, installation of subsea equipment and FPSO is planned for late 2009 through to mid 2010 and initial oil production is targeted for late 2010. Field operations are projected to last for 20 years (ie until 2031) although future appraisal and development of the reserve may extend this period significantly.

EIA Team

Tullow commissioned Environmental Resources Management (ERM) in collaboration with ESL Consulting, Ghana (ESL) to undertake the EIA for the Phase 1 Jubilee Field development.
