Total starts Alta production offshore Norway

Total has started production from Alta gas-condensate field offshore Norway, expecting average flow to reach 14,000 boe/d, including 2,500 b/d of condensate, next year.

Alta, part of the PL102c license on North Sea Block 25/5, is a subsea completion in 119 m of water tied back to Total’s Skirne/Byggve subsea template connected with the Heimdal host platform 24 km southwest.

Alta produces from Middle Jurassic Brent sandstone at a depth of about 2,700 m. The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate lists original reserves estimates of the 2010 discovery at 300,000 standard cu m of oil and 1.4 billion standard cu m of natural gas.

Total E&P Norge is operator with a 40% interest. Other interests are Petoro 30%, Centrica 20%, and Det Norske 10%.
