Total has announced the start-up of gas and condensate production from the Termokarstovoye field, located in the Yamalo Nenets Autonomous District of Russia.
The onshore field will produce approximately 6.6 million m3 of gas and 20 000 bpd of condensate, with a combined production capacity of 65 000 bpd of oil equivalent.
Commenting on the news, Michael Borrell, Senior VP Exploration & Production, Europe and Central Asia, said: “We are delighted with the start up of Termokarstovoye, the first project executed together with our strategic partner in Russia Novatek, with whom we are also jointly developing the Yamal LNG project.
“Achieved ahead of schedule and below budget, Termokarstovoye, the fourth start-up since the beginning of the year, will contribute to Total’s production growth in 2015.”
The project infrastructure is adapted to arctic conditions and includes a gas gathering network, a gas treatment plant, a gas condensate de-ethanisation facility and export pipelines.
The Termokarstovoye field is operated by Terneftegas, a joint venture between Novatek and Total.
