Total has started production on the third phase of development on the Al Khalij oil field, off Qatar. The company has also brought on stream a platform for water separation and treatment.

Total will produce an extra 20,000 b/d with the Al Khalij North development start-up and finalization of the drilling phase in January 2005, compensating for its natural decline. The new peak production will reach 50,000 b/d.

Ten new production and injection wells will provide the additional ouput with unmanned and remotely operated platforms to handle the separation, treatment, and re-injection of water.

Total holds a 100% stake in the Al Khaij field.
