DONG Energy welcomed the start-up of gas production from the Laggan-Tormore fields in the UK’s West of Shetlands area. Operated by Total with DONG Energy a 20% equity owner, Laggan-Tormore is located in 600 metres of water West of Shetland and will produce 90,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day (boe/d).

The Laggan-Tormore fields are located in the deepwater West of the Shetland region. The development consists of a 140 kilometre tie-back of four subsea wells to the new onshore Shetland Gas Plant which has a capacity of 500 million standard cubic feet per day. Following treatment at the gas plant, the processed gas is exported to the mainland.

“This marks our first UK production and is an exciting step forward for our business.  Laggan-Tormore has been a pioneer project to develop new infrastructure and to secure gas production from this frontier area of the UK Continental Shelf. To do this we have worked closely with some of our peers in the UK oil industry as well as the authorities and have established an important strategic position for our business," said David Cook, Executive Vice President for DONG Energy Oil & Gas.

“Following our many discoveries in the West of Shetlands, we have worked hard to realise the area’s huge potential. First production shows that, together with operator Total, we have successfully delivered this complex project from exploration through appraisal, then to development and now operations," said Michael Smith, Managing Director DONG Oil & Gas UK.
