Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Following the award of a cables supply and management contract for the MODECTEN FPSO Development in March 2014, Cables International has commenced delivery of fast-track cables to the project site.

Cables International is contracted to supply all power, control, instrumentation and communication cables and provide full cables management services throughout the duration of the vessel’s construction in Singapore. All project cables are being managed at Cables International’s hub in Singapore and delivered on a just-in-time basis to both the main fabrication site in Singapore and various sub-contractor locations across South East Asia.


Tullow Ghana, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tullow Oil, awarded the TEN Ghana MV25 project to Japan’s MODEC. The contract is for the supply, charter and lease; operation and maintenance of a FPSO vessel for the Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme (TEN) fields in the Deepwater Tano contract area, in water depth averaging 4,921ft (1,500m).

The Deepwater Tano contract area is held by Tullow (47.2%) as operator; Kosmos Energy (17 %); Anadarko Petroleum (17%); Sabre Oil & Gas Holdings, a wholly owned subsidiary of Petro SA (3.8%); and the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (15%).

MODEC is responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, mobilisation and operation of the FPSO, including topsides processing equipment as well as hull and marine systems. SOFEC will design and provide the mooring system. Once converted from the VLCC (very large crude carrier) Centennial J the new FPSO will be capable of handling expected plateau production of 80,000 barrels of oil per day, 170 million standard cubic feet of gas per day and has storage of 1.7 million barrels of total fluids.

Scheduled for delivery during 2016, the FPSO will be installed in the TEN field and is designed to remain operational in the field for up to 20 years.
