PARIS – Total has started production from the Edradour and Glenlivet gas and condensate fields west of Shetland.
Both are in 300-435 m (984-1,427 ft) water depths in the west of Shetland area, and were developed through facilities serving theLaggan-Tormore fields which came onstream in February 2016.
The Edradour and Glenlivet development will boost production capacity by up to 56,000 boe/d.
“The start-up of the Edradour and Glenlivet fields demonstrates Total’s ability to deliver projects, taking advantage of favorable market conditions and simplifying designs to optimie execution,” said Arnaud Breuillac, president Exploration & Production.
“We have completed this project ahead of schedule and 30% under the initial budget.”
The development involved a 35-km (21.7-mi) tieback of three subsea wells to the Laggan-Tormore production system, which include the 143-km (89-mi) export pipeline to Shetland and the onshore Shetland Gas Plant.
Following treatment at the plant, the gas is sent to the UK mainland via the offshore Shetland Island Regional Gas Export System (SIRGE) and FUKA pipeline. Condensates are exported via the Sullom Voe Terminal.
Total E&P UK operates Edradour and Glenlivet with a 60% interest, in partnership with DONG E&P (UK) (20%) and SSE E&P UK (20%).
