The Jubilee FPSO Kwame Nkrumah has been shutdown for the second time, according to the partners.

The shutdown, which took effect Monday, May 28, 2018 is in consultation with the Government of Ghana, the Ministry of Energy and the Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC).

“This is to enable the Operator Tullow Ghana, undertake completion works on the vessel’s damaged turret bearing. Scheduled planned maintenance and reliability work will also be performed.

“Following the successful shutdown in February, this second shutdown of 2018 is projected to last approximately three weeks,” a statement from Tullow Ghana said.

It added: “As announced at the beginning of the year, during this second work phase, gas supply from the Jubilee Field to the Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC) will be substituted with gas from the TEN Fields.

“The Jubilee Partners appreciate the collaboration with various agencies to ensure that this important scope of work is carried out successfully.”
