PARIS, FRANCE: Total SA has started up production from the Culzean gas condensate field located on Block 22/25a, off the coast of Aberdeen, UK.

With a plateau production of 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d), Culzean will account for around 5 percent of the UK’s gas consumption, bringing to 18 percent the proportion of the country’s gas demand supplied by Total.

Total operates Culzean with a 49.99 percent participating interest, alongside BP (32 percent) and JX Nippon (18.01 percent).

“The Culzean project is delivered ahead of schedule and more than 10% below the initial budget, which represents Capex savings of more than 500 million dollars. This has been achieved thanks to the excellent performance of the project teams in charge of the construction and drilling operations,” said Arnaud Breuillac, President Exploration & Production at Total.

“Culzean is a good example of our efforts to upgrade our portfolio in the North Sea over the last years, notably by bringing Total and Maersk Oil together. The Culzean field is located in the Central Graben area, close to the Elgin-Franklin fields, also operated by Total, thus generating synergies,” added Breuillac.
