Tullow Begins Production at the Kelvin Field in the North Sea

Tullow says natural gas production from the Kelvin field commenced on November 15, 2007 at a gross rate of 103 mmscfd on a 30% choke.

The Kelvin field development consists of a single well, a minimum-facilities platform and a 12 kilometer pipeline that connects to the Tullow-owned CMS infrastructure at Murdoch. The development also acts as a potential tie-in point for the nearby K4 and Harrison discoveries.

The project has been completed under budget, ahead of schedule and just two years after the field was discovered.
