Defense Minister, CDS hail Tullow Ghana’s safety procedures

Tullow Ghana Limited has been praised for maintaining a high level of safety in operating its two Floating Production Storage and Offloading Vessels (FPSO).
Defence Minister, Dominic Nitiwul, gave strong endorsement of safety standards maintained by Tullow Ghana in its operations during a tour of the Tweneboa, Enyera and Ntomme (TEN) FPSO offshore Western Region on Tuesday.
 
The tour by the Defence, Chief of Defence Staff, General Obed Akwa and other high level officers allowed them to familiarise themselves with the FPSO which produces oil from the TEN oil fields operated by Tullow Ghana.
Mr. Nitiwul said of the TEN FPSO, “my first impression is that the people here are doing very well. I think the way they are going about their protection arrangement and complying with protective regulation is good for us.
"What I would urge is for Ghanaians to co-operate with them; at the end of the day they are doing work for all of us.”
 
The tour was facilitated by TEN FPSO Offshore Installation Managers for Tullow Prince Amoako and Contactors MODEC, Gary Fearn tour. Both emphasised safety as the bedrock of smooth operations at the facility.
Mr. Ntiwul was concerned about operations of fishermen in the area but the Offshore Installation Managers indicated the fishermen are not allowed within 500 meters of the TEN FPSO, for their own safety.
 
The TEN FPSO is Tullow Ghana’s second producing asset and is named after late President John Evans Atta Mills. TEN began production in August 2016 and has produced more than 15 million barrels of oil.
