Total has commenced production at the Glenelg gas and condensates field, located 240 kilometers east of Aberdeen in a water depth of about 100 meters.

The Glenelg development has been a technical challenge for Total. The Group managed to successfully drill a highly deviated well of 7300 meters in length from the Elgin platform. The well reached its target at a depth of 5600 meters below sea level in a very high temperature and high pressure reservoir (200 degrees Celsius and 1150 bars).

This well has a production potential of about 30,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

The production from Glenelg will be processed and exported through the existing Elgin-Franklin facilities and will contribute to extend their gas production plateau at a level of 15.5 million cubic meters per day (around 550 million cubic feet per day).

Total, operator with a 49.47% interest, is partnered in Glenelg with E.ON Ruhrgas (18.57%), BG International (14.7%), GDF (9.26%) and Eni (8%).

The Glenelg success illustrates the willingness of the Group to deploy its technical expertise to valorize, through innovative projects, hydrocarbon reserves which were not developable up to now.
