Manifolds and Risers

In July BigLift’s Tramper transported four subsea manifolds and two riser bases to Ghana for installation on the seabed in the TEN fields project.  The manifolds and risers were constructed by FMC Technologies in Houston, USA and loaded in the port of Houston.

The riser bases – 140 mt each – and the manifolds – weighing 155 mt – were loaded by ship’s crane and stowed on custom made support beams that had been placed on the tank top and the weather decks. Apart from the heavy items, Tramper loaded various other offshore materials, also for Takoradi, Ghana.

TEN Project
The offshore oil and gas TEN Project off Ghana is nearing completion. Tullow’s production and development projects in West Africa include the company’s flagship operated asset, the Jubilee field in Ghana, the TEN Project which is the group’s second development in Ghana and a portfolio of non-operated production assets in five further countries across the region. The TEN Project will produce up to 80,000 barrels of oil per day, and is on track and on budget for first oil in mid-2016.
