Jubilee field has produced over 50Million Barrels since first oil in December 2010 according to Kosmos Energy, the American independent in partnership with Tullow Oil and Anadarko. “Production is currently in excess of 105,000 barrels of oil per day”, the company says in an operational update. “Significant production growth has resulted from additional acid stimulation operations performed on some of the Phase 1 wells, as well as the startup of the Jubilee Phase 1A development plan.
Two additional acid stimulation operations on Jubilee Phase 1 production wells have been recently performed, at a gross cost of approximately $8 million per well”. Darrell McKenna, Chief Operating Officer, is excited. “The new production capacity demonstrates not only that we have solved the well productivity issues, but further confirms excellent reservoir performance”, he says in the update. “In total, seven acid stimulation operations have been performed in 2012, with all treated wells showing substantial productivity increases”.
The first of five Phase 1A production wells was recently completed and has commenced production to the Jubilee floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. A second Phase 1A production well is expected to be online by the end of January 2013, with the remainder to be drilled, completed, and commissioned in the first half of 2013. The Company has a 24 percent participating interest in the Jubilee field.
