The TEN FPSO has been in the design phase since 2011.  The TEN project is in the Tano contract area, and Tullow is the operator of the three license areas with a 47.175% equity interest. Anadarko Petroleum and Kosmos Energy each have a 17% interest, while Ghana National Petroleum Corporation has a 15% interest, and Petro SA has a 3.825% interest.
