Vega Pleyade field starts up off Argentina
Production has started from Vega Pleyade natural gas and condensate field offshore Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, reports operator Total SA.
The field can produce 10 million cu m/day.
Total developed it with a wellhead platform in 50 m of water tied back via a 77 km pipeline to onshore Rio Cullen and Canadon Alfa onshore treatment facilities, also operated by Total.
Total said Vega Pleyade is the world’s southernmost gas development.
Other fields in the concession are Ara and Canadon Alfa, both onshore, and Hidra, Kaus, Argo, Carina, and Aries, offshore.
