Statoil Fires Up Gas Production at Vega Field

Statoil has turned on the taps at its Vega gas and condensate field off Norway's west coast. The field was developed with three seabed templates sending gas and condensate to the Gjoa platform.

It is estimated the Vega field will deliver 7 million cubic meters of gas and 3,900 cubic meters of condensate daily. Vega consists of two licenses, Vega and Vega Sor, and initial start-up of the field brings four wells online, with the final two expected to come online in April 2011.
