The TEN FPSO will receive, process and store crude oil. The vessel, which is currently being converted from a tanker into an FPSO, will be permanently moored over the TEN fields.
The conversion of the double-hull Centennial Jewel tanker began in October 2013 and it is on track to be ready to sail away from the Jurong shipyard in Singapore to Ghanaian waters by the end of 2015. The TEN FPSO will be named “FPSO Prof. John Evans Atta Mills”, after the late president of Ghana.
A GLOBAL OPERATION
TEN is a truly international project, with work being undertaken in Ghana, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, France, Norway and the USA.
The project is committed to maximising local content and all major contractors were required to implement local content development plans in their tenders. This has seen significant work completed in Ghana, including the construction of the FPSO’s module support stools and mooring piles, the fabrication of subsea mud mats and the assembly of subsea christmas trees.
