Tullow Oil says phase 1A development of the field is proceeding with 998% operating uptime and a zero lost time time incident rate. During the first half this year Jubilee production has averaged 63,100 b/d: “The field is expected to exit 2012 with a gross production rate in excess of 90,000 bopd as it ramps up to plateau production in 2013,” Tullow signalled today in an operational update.
Currently a number of Jubilee wells are offline for acid stimulation work but field output is expected to increase by a third towards the end of this year, to 90,000 b/d.
“Significant increases are expected in the second half of 2012 as the benefit of the acidisation programme is realised and new Phase 1A wells are brought onstream,” Tullow has stated. “Jubilee field production is expected to average between 70,000 and 80,000 bopd gross in 2012, underpinned by the successful re-mediation programme.”
Acid stimulation has been completed on three Jubilee wells and another three wells are planned to receive acid stimulation.
And: “The field is expected to exit 2012 with a gross production rate in excess of 90,000 bopd as it ramps up to plateau production in 2013.”
