Talk Description
Jubilee Field Development Project and Production Performance
Gilbert Y Yevi, Tullow Ghana Ltd

The Jubilee project is one of the fastest and most successful deepwater developments in the World. Discovered in June 2007 in 1200-1500 meters water depth at approximately 60 km of the coast of Ghana, the Jubilee field started production in December 2010, just three years after its development decision was made in January 2008.

Jubilee project was delivered in a record pace and on budget. The phased development approach, the project team structure, the use of proven technology, the focus on HSE, the split of responsibilities amongst joint venture companies, and the emphasis on good relationships with local communities and government are some of the factors that contributed to the delivery of Jubilee.

Since start-up, the Jubilee field has performed above expectations with world class FPSO production uptime exceeding 98%. The FPSO oil production system capacity was tested at rates well over 125,000 bopd which exceed its design rates of 120,000 bopd.

This talk will present the Jubilee project and the key factors that enabled its success. The presentation will also discuss the sparing and maintenance strategies that help Jubilee sustain a top quartile production performance in an environment with no previously existing major oil and gas production activities or infrastructures.
