UK: Total Sends Helicopter on Elgin Platform

UK: Total Sends Helicopter on Elgin Platform

Total confirms that a helicopter took off from Aberdeen at 10:30am today with the objective of landing on the Elgin PUQ (Process, Utilities, Quarters) to allow a specialised team to perform a reconnaissance mission of the Elgin wellhead platform and the G4 well, if it is safe to do so.

On 25 March, Total reported that a gas leak following a well operation occurred at the wellhead platform on the Elgin gas field which is located in the UK North Sea approximately 240 km east of Aberdeen.

Following confirmation on Saturday morning (31 March) that the flare on the Elgin Platform has extinguished itself, Total is actively preparing operations to regain control of the leaking well which has been flowing at a rate of 200.000 m3 of gas per day.
