Anadarko’s continued global business approach has led to significant discoveries and developments throughout the African continent.
Advanced Development and Production in Ghana
Anadarko and partners announced first oil from the Jubilee field in December 2010. First oil was achieved safely and in record time, just 3.5 years following first discovery. During the second quarter of 2014, Jubilee achieved a production milestone of 100 million barrels of cumulative oil production and is averaging more than 100,000 BOE per day.
The History of Ghana’s Jubilee Field
The Jubilee project is the first producing deepwater field and the largest in Ghana's history. Located in waters up to 5,700 feet deep, approximately 80-miles southwest of the port city of Takoradi, Jubilee is a series of subsea wells tied back to a massive, 1,181-foot-long floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel that has the capacity to produce 120,000 barrels of oil per day.
The Next Major Development
The partnership’s success has expanded in Ghana with significant discoveries at the adjacent Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme fields. These discoveries, now referred to as the TEN complex, are advancing as the next major development in the region with first oil anticipated in the third quarter of 2016.
