Total Starts Production at Islay Gas Field in North Sea

Total announced first production from its Islay gas field in the Northern North Sea, 440 kilometers north-east of Aberdeen.

Total operates and fully owns the Islay field, which was discovered mid 2008 and is mainly located in Block 3/15 of the United Kingdom sector and partly in Blocks 29/6a and 29/6c of the Norwegian sector. Lying in a water depth of 120 meters, the field has estimated reserves of nearly 17 million barrels of oil equivalent and has already reached its expected production of 15 000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Islay’s single well is tied-back to the Alwyn North platform via existing subsea infrastructure, underlining Total’s strategy in the North Sea of using existing facilities to exploit the potential of satellite discoveries. This project will help to further extend the life of Total’s fully owned Alwyn production hub.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
