Kosmos Energy has reported that it has been informed by Tullow Oil plc, the operator of the Jubilee Unit, of a change to operating procedures on the Jubilee field Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessel (FPSO).
During an inspection of the turret area of the Jubilee FPSO by SOFEC, the original turret manufacturer, a potential issue was identified with the turret bearing. Consequently, additional precautionary operating procedures are being put in place to monitor the turret bearing and reduce the degree of rotation of the vessel.
SOFEC will undertake further offshore examinations and Tullow will work with SOFEC to determine what further measures will be required. Oil production and gas export is continuing as normal.
