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.

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