The West Africa Business Delivery Team focuses on Tullow’s production and development projects in West Africa. This includes Tullow’s flagship operated asset, the Jubilee field in Ghana, the TEN Project which is the Group’s second development in Ghana, and a portfolio of non-operated production assets in five further countries across the region. The West Africa Business Delivery Team also manages the Group’s UK and the Netherlands gas production, which is part of an ongoing divestment plan.
Tullow’s West Africa 2016 oil production was in line with recent guidance averaging 65,500 bopd. This includes 4,600 bopd of production-equivalent payments received under Tullow’s Business Interruption insurance policy for the Jubilee field. In Europe, working interest gas production performed in line with expectations and full year net production averaged 6,200 boepd.
In 2017, West Africa working interest oil production, including production-equivalent insurance payments, is expected to average between 78,000 and 85,000 bopd. Europe working interest gas production is expected to average between 6,000 and 7,000 boepd.
