Wood Group reported Tuesday that its unit Wood Group Kenny (WGK) has has been awarded an engineering services contract to support Tullow Ghana Limited and its partners through the execution phase of the Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme (TEN) project, offshore Ghana.
WGK will provide subsea, umbilical, risers, flowlines (SURF) engineering services.
The Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme oil fields are situated in the Deepwater Tano area, offshore Ghana, approximately 18.6 miles (30 kilometers) from the existing Jubilee field.
Steve Wayman, CEO of Wood Group Kenny said: “We see this as a very significant award from a number of perspectives. We are extremely pleased to be extending our business relationship with Tullow, particularly for the execution phase of this important project – we believe this is a reflection of our depth of technical experience, and strong resource base across a wide global footprint.
“It follows on from our previous relevant experience in supporting the delivery of SURF projects across several West African countries, including Ghana, where we intend to recruit Ghanaian national graduates on an annual basis, train Ghanaian nationals as subsea engineers, thereby building up local resource capability in the subsea disciplines and to provide bursaries and work with local universities to develop subsea-specific modules on selected engineering degree courses.
“We will be focused on doing everything we can to help Tullow and its partners achieve first oil in a safe and timely fashion.”
The TEN Project has been sanctioned by the partners and the Ghanaian government, and contracts have been awarded for the floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, subsea hardware, risers, pipelines, umbilicals, and for subsea installation.
