Cumulative production to date this year stands at more than 33 million barrels and 34 liftings.

"Remedial work to rectify well productivity issues has included the sidetracking and installation of an alternative completion design in one of the affected wells and, in parallel, a programme of acid stimulations," said the Tullow Oil statement.

"Initial results are encouraging and the remediation programme is expected to continue over the coming months. Gross production is expected to average between 70,000 and 90,000 bopd in 2012 and field capacity is expected to be reached in early 2013."

Phase 1A development was approved by the government of Ghana in January and will include five additional producing wells and three injection wells.

The first well was drilled in April and the first production from the Phase 1A development is expected by Tullow in the fourth quarter of 2012.

"Tullow is confident that, having delivered industry-leading basin-opening exploration success already this year, and with key developments progressing well, the group will deliver further significant growth in 2012," said the statement.
