Work commences on Jubilee Gas Project

The Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) has started engineering work on the multi-billion dollar Jubilee Gas Project to harness the country’s natural gas deposits.


Technip Company Limited has therefore been contracted by GNPC to engineer, weld and install a-14 kilometre rigid steel flow line under Phase I of the project to pipe the gas from the Jubilee Field to Jomoro in the Western Region.

 According to officials of Technip, under the current phase, the flow lines will be connected to the gas export riser linked to the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah, for onward transportation to the shore.

 Mr. Stephane Sole, the Country Manager for Technip, said the company has successfully completed the fabrication and spooling of the 14-kilometer flow lines on board the laying vessel, known as Apache II, at the Technip Spool Base in Alabama, USA, and is expected to arrive in Ghana next month.

 He pointed out that, Apache II is fully loaded with the flow lines and will start work immediately on arrival, since initial preparations have already been concluded.
