FPSO Kwame Nkrumah MV21

The FPSO Kwame Nkrumah MV21 is installed in approximately 1,100 meters water depth on the Jubilee Field, which is one of the largest oil fields discovered offshore West Africa in the past 10 years.

The FPSO is capable of processing more than 120,000 barrels of oil per day, and injecting more than 230,000 barrels of water per day and 160 MMscfd of produced gas.

On November 28, 2010, the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah MV21 achieved commissioning of first oil offshore Ghana. The oil from this day has been used to commission the facilities for Tullow's official First Oil Ceremony held on December 15, 2010. The FPSO is designed to remain on the field for up to 20 years.
