FPSO Prof. John Evans Atta Mills, which will produce and store oil from Ghana’s Tweneboa-Enyenra-Ntomme (TEN) offshore oil fields, begins its voyage to Ghana. The floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel has been under construction in Singapore since October 2013. The departure of the vessel on schedule is an important milestone for the TEN Project which is now over 80% complete and remains on track to start producing oil in July or August 2016.

The vessel departed the Tuas shipyard in Singapore on Saturday 23 January and sailed into the Malacca Strait. Her voyage to Ghana will see her sail westward across the Indian Ocean before rounding the southern tip of Africa and sailing up the West African coast.

The FPSO is expected to arrive in Ghanaian waters in early March, where she will be stationed above the TEN fields, around 60 kilometres from the coast of Ghana’s Western Region.

Upon her arrival, the FPSO will be attached to nine anchor piles which will maintain her position above the oil fields. These 21 metre high steel cylinders were built in Ghana by Group Five Construction Ghana Ltd. They were completed on time and are already installed in the seabed, awaiting the arrival of the FPSO.

Other Ghanaian contributions to the FPSO include her module support stools, which sit on the deck and support heavy equipment. These were fabricated by Ghanaian companies Seaweld Engineering Ltd and Orsam Ltd.

The FPSO has a nominal production capacity of 80,000 barrels of oil per day and a storage capacity of 1.7 million barrels. She is 350 metres long and can accommodate 120 people.

The FPSO was officially named by Her Excellency the First Lady of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Nana Lordina Mahama at a ceremony in Singapore in September 2015. The vessel is named in memory of the late President Atta Mills who oversaw first oil from Ghana’s Jubilee Field in 2010.

The development of the TEN fields is being led by Tullow Oil along with its partners the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation, Kosmos Energy, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation and Petro SA.

The construction of the FPSO has been led by global supplier and operator of offshore floating platforms, MODEC Inc. The FPSO will be operated and maintained by MODEC Ghana Ltd.
