Tullow technical issues in Ghana

Oil production at Tullow Oil's Jubilee field in Ghana has been hit by technical issues. The Irish-founded company said there has been a problem with its gas compression systems, and that export of gas from the field has been halted since July 3.

Tullow said it has mobilised a team of experts to rectify the fault and have estimated it will take approximately a further three weeks to reinstate gas export and full oil production. The company said it will review its 2015 production forecast for the field.
