The OCTP integrated oil & gas development is made up of the Sankofa Main, Sankofa East and Gye-Nyame fields, which are located about 60 kilometers off Ghana’s Western Region coast. The fields have about 770 million barrel of oil equivalent (mboe) in place, of which 500 million barrels of oil and 270 mboe of non-associated gas (about 40 billion cubic meters). The project includes the development of gas fields whose production will be utilized entirely by Ghana’s domestic market.

First oil was achieved in July 2017 and production is carried out via the “John Agyekum Kufuor” floating production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO), which produces up to 85,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) through 18 underwater wells. A 63-kilometer submarine pipeline transports gas to Sanzule's Onshore Receiving Facilities (ORF), where it is processed and transmitted to Ghana’s national grid, supplying approximately 180 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd).
