TOTAL: GAS FOR BRITAIN
OGJ - Total SA made a natural gas discovery on the Glendronach prospect offshore UK West of Shetland that it believes can be commercialized quickly and at low cost by leveraging the existing Laggan-Tormore infrastructure.
The well, drilled to a final depth of 4,312 m, encountered a gas column of 42 m of net pay in a high-quality Lower Cretaceous reservoir. Preliminary tests confirm good reservoir quality, permeability, and well production deliverability, with recoverable resources estimated at about 1 tcf, Total said.
Total said the discovery, which was drilled in 300 m of water on Block 206/04a in a formation below the Edradour reservoir, can be developed quickly with the existing systems around Edradour field and the Laggan-Tormore facilities of the Shetland gas plant.
"Glendronach is a significant discovery for Total which gives us access to additional gas resources in one of our core areas and validates our exploration strategy," said Arnaud Breuillac, Total president, exploration and production.
The Glendronach discovery is operated by Total E&P UK with 60% interest. Partners are Ineos E&P UK Ltd., 20%, and SSE E&P UK Ltd., 20%.
