Tullow justifies planned shutdown of Jubilee FPSO
Oil exploration giant, Tullow, says it will not be able to review a planned shutdown of the Jubilee FPSO for maintenance works, despite calls to do so.
There are fears the planned two-week shutdown may plunge the country into darkness as thermal plants are likely to be starved of gas to produce power.
The shutdown is expected to start on March 20.
Ghana Gas Company has already indicated that, it will not be able to supply gas to the country’s power producers.
Managing Director of Tullow Ghana, Charles Darku, said safety of the FPSO cannot be compromised, insisting the maintenance works cannot be ignored.
