Ekofisk Area Growth Project Brought on Stream in Norway

Total announces that the first five wells in the Ekofisk Area Growth project have been brought on stream. Initiated in 2003, the project involves installing a new platform and drilling 25 more production wells on the Ekofisk field. At peak, the new development will produce around 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Total holds the majority share (39.9%) in Ekofisk, one of the North Sea’s largest oil fields, and is partnered with ConocoPhillips (35.1%, operator), Eni, Norsk Hydro, Petoro and Statoil.

By bringing these new wells on stream, Total further demonstrates its commitment to valorizing North Sea reserves and consolidates its position as the second largest international producer in Norway.
