First oil production from the Tweneboa-Enyera-Ntomme, also known as (TEN) fields, is expected to begin Thursday.
The joint venture project, led by Tullow Ghana is expected to produce about 300 million barrels of oil over its lifetime, approximately 20 years.
President John Mahama who is currently on a campaign tour of the Western region, will join officials of the Petroleum Ministry and project engineers to officially inaugurate oil production by FPSO Professor John Evans Atta Mills, to mark another major mile stone in Ghana’s oil and gas sector.
The field will produce 80 thousand barrels of oil per day when it reaches full production.
It will also produce an average of 30 million standard cubic feet of gas per day over the next five years and is expected to reach 100 million standard cubic feet of gas per day by 2032.
Speaking to Radio Ghana’s Rukiyatu Musah on Thursday’s inauguration the Head of Communication at the Ministry of Petroleum, Edward Bawa, said the coming on stream of TEN will add to the country’s assets in terms of oil and gas.
