-- TotalFinaElf studying potential Dalia field development
TotalFinaElf SA has launched basic engineering studies for the Dalia project. The field is on Block 17, 135 km off Angola, in 1,300 m of water. Discovered in 1997, Dalia is near the Girassol oil field, which is due on stream in late 2001 with peak production of 200,000 b/d oil. Dalia may have greater production potential than Girassol, said TotalFinaElf.
