Total kicks off production at pair of gas fields west of Shetland

French oil major Total has started production at the Edradour & Glenlivet gas and condensate fields in the West of Shetland. 

The fields are located in about 300 to 435 meters of water in the West of Shetland area, close to the Laggan-Tormore fields which came on stream in February 2016. The Laggan-Tormore development consists of a 140 kilometer tie-back of four subsea wells to the new onshore Shetland Gas Plant which has a capacity of 500 million standard cubic feet per day.

The Edradour and Glenlivet development will bring additional production capacity of up to 56,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day (boe/d), Total said on Wednesday.

“The start-up of the Edradour & Glenlivet fields demonstrates Total’s ability to deliver projects, taking advantage of favorable market conditions and simplifying designs to optimize execution. We have completed this project ahead of schedule and 30% under the initial budget,” said Arnaud Breuillac, President Exploration & Production. “This development will contribute to our production growth in the North Sea.”

The Edradour and Glenlivet development consists of a 35 kilometer tie-back of three subsea wells to the existing Laggan-Tormore production system, which include the 143 kilometer pipeline and the onshore Shetland Gas Plant. Following treatment at the gas plant, the gas is exported to the UK mainland via the Shetland Island Regional Gas Export System (SIRGE) and FUKA pipeline, and will serve the UK domestic market. The condensates are exported via the Sullom Voe Terminal.

Total E&P UK operates Edradour & Glenlivet with a 60% interest alongside partners DONG E&P (UK) Limited (20%) and SSE E&P UK Limited (20%).
