Key program components are Sleipner West's Alpha North satellite development, which began production Oct. 11from a subsea template, four wells, and a pipeline to the Sleipner T gas treatment installation on Sleipner East (OGJ Online, Oct. 13, 2004). Modification of the Sleipner T platform to accommodate compression saved $380 million against the cost of a new platform.
