Total Begins Production at Forvie North Field

Total reports that the Forvie North gas and condensates field has just started production, nine months after official approval of the development plans by the British Authorities.

Total owns (100%) and operates the field which is located approximately 440 kilometers north-east of Aberdeen in a water depth of 120 metres. Forvie North has been developed using subsea technologies and is connected to the processing and transport installations of Alwyn North, 33 kilometers away.

The expected production of Forvie North at plateau is around 20,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

The Forvie North start-up illustrates the willingness of Total to continue exploring the UK Continental Shelf and rapidly developing resulting economic discoveries.
