Total starts Incahuasi field in Bolivia

Total SA and partners have started production from Incahuasi natural gas and condensate field in Bolivia and are considering further development (OGJ Online, Sept. 25, 2013).

The first development phase has production capacity of 50,000 boe/d. It includes three wells drilled to below 5,600 m, a 230-MMcfd gas treatment plant, and 100 km of pipelines supporting exports to Argentina and Brazil.

The field spans the Ipati and Aquio blocks in the Andean foothills 250 km south of Santa Cruz de la Sierra.

A second development phase would involve three more wells and double the production rate.

Total, operator, holds a 50% interest. Gazprom and Tecpetrol hold 20% each, and YPFB Chaco holds 10%.
