Chevron began production at its high-pressure, high-temperature Alder gas condensate field in the Central North Sea in the United Kingdom.

Alder is a single subsea well tied back, via a 28-kilometer pipeline, to the existing ConocoPhillips-operated Britannia platform, in which Chevron holds a 32.38 percent non-operated working interest.

Speaking of the first gas at Alder, Greta Lydecker, managing director, Chevron Upstream Europe, said it adds to the company’s production portfolio and extends the field life of Brittania, an important asset to Chevron in the North Sea.

The project has a planned design capacity of 110 million cubic feet of natural gas and 14,000 barrels of condensate per day, Chevron said in its statement.

Production from the HPHT Alder field, discovered in 1975, is expected to ramp up over the coming months.
