The OCTP (Offshore Cape Three Points) block is located in the Offshore Ghana in 500-1000 meters of water depth and about 60 km from the coast. The OCTP block is regulated by a Petroleum Agreement signed on 15th Match 2006 between the Republic of Ghana (Minister of Energy) and the Contractor group, formed by:

  • ENI Ghana E&P Limited P.I. = 47.22%; W.I. (expl. phase) = 55.56%
  • Vitol Upstream Ghana Limited P.I. = 37.78%; W.I. (expl. phase) = 44.44%
  • GNPC P.I. = 15%; W.I. (expl. phase) = 0%

The OCTP Field shall be produced from five main regions (NE, SE, SW, NW and Gye Nyame) with the FPSO moored above the Sankofa Canyon. Produced oil shall be delivered to be FPSO via 3 round-trip piggable flow loops and associated flexible risers located at the NE, SE and SW regions. Artificial Gas Lift is required at SW production loop riser bases.

Water and Gas injection wells are required to maintain reservoir pressure and dispose of produced water and associated gas, with the potential for the Gas Injection wells to become Gas Producers late in field life. These wells shall be tied back via individual dedicated flexible flowlines and risers to the FPSO.
