Total has started-up production from the Laggan and Tormore gas and condensate fields, located in 600 meters of water in the West of Shetland area. The fields will produce 90,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d).
“Laggan-Tormore is a key component of our production growth in 2016 and beyond. The innovative subsea-to-shore development concept, the first of its kind in the United Kingdom, has no offshore surface infrastructure and benefits from both improved safety performance and lower costs,” said Arnaud Breuillac, President Exploration & Production.
“By opening up this new production hub in the deep offshore waters of the West of Shetland, Total is also boosting the United Kingdom’s production capacity and Europe’s energy security.”
