Production of oil from the country’s third independent oil and gas field, operated by Italian oil giant, Ente Nazionale Idrocarburi (ENI), began from the Offshore Cape Three Points (OCTP) in the Western Region yesterday.
Production began after the company successfully installed all the subsea infrastructure and hooked it onto the production platform FPSO John Agyekum Kufuor, which arrived in the country on April 10, this year and was anchored to the OCTP Field in the Tano Basin.
He said the feat was also a testimony of the exploration skills and knowledge, as well as the field development vision of ENI and its partners, adding that “it confirms the effectiveness of our new operational model, where ENI has a central role in project management, aimed at improving time-to-market”.
The takeoff of OCTP project is expected to provide gas for the country’s energy sector for more than 15 years for electricity generation to boost the country’s growth and transformation agenda.
