Tullow orders Magma flowline for TEN field

Dina Star

Tullow Oil subsidiary, Tullow Ghana Limited, has awarded a contract for a 2.5-kilometer flowline to Magma Global for its TEN project in Ghana.

Magma said that the six-inch spoolable carbon composite m-pipe would be deployed from a 10-meter diameter reel with a 20-ton tensioner, and the total weight of pipe and deployment package is under 100 tons.

As a result, the flowline can be deployed from the Tullow infield multipurpose construction vessel, currently in-country on long-term charter.

Magma Global COO, Charles Tavner, said: “We are delighted to be able to help Tullow reduce the cost of this infill work. At 1,800m this is another deepwater deployment in a production application for Magma m-pipe, in what has already been a busy year for us.”

As far as the vessels working for Tullow are concerned, GC Rieber’s Polar Onyx was recently awarded a contract for work offshore Ghana in support of Deepocean’s contract with Tullow Oil. The contract was awarded for a fixed period of three years with options to extend by up to two years.

DeepOcean also has a long-term contract with Tullow Ghana for the LCV Dina Star.
