A key milestone of the TEN Project was recently reached when the turret was lifted on to the floating, production, storage and offtake (FPSO) vessel.
The TEN Project is Tullow’s second major operated deepwater development in Ghana, which will produce up to 80,000 barrels of oil per day.
The TEN FPSO is currently under construction in the JSL Shipyard in Singapore and the turret is one of the most significant modules to be installed. Weighing approximately 3,055 tonnes, the turret is currently the biggest external turret in the world. The video above shows the lift taking place.
The TEN Project is now 60% complete and remains on track and on budget for first oil in mid-2016.
