Early in its life, Kosmos identified the Tano Basin offshore Ghana as a potential premier hydrocarbon system. Previous industry drilling had failed to deliver significant success offshore Ghana. However, Kosmos’ vision and differentiated approach to exploration led to important discoveries and proved the overlooked Upper Cretaceous stratigraphic play concept.
Kosmos’ Jubilee discovery in 2007 was the company’s first major discovery and one of West Africa’s largest discoveries of the last two decades. First production from the initial development phase was in late 2010. Average production is approximately 100,000 barrels of oil per day, and Jubilee partners are working to enhance field performance. Jubilee is a world-class, long-life production asset.
Success at Jubilee led to a number of follow-on oil and gas-condensate discoveries in the Deepwater Tano block. Oil production at the Tweneboa, Enyenra, and Ntomme (TEN) fields began in 2016.
