Area Drilling

Sept. 11, 2006


Total SA started production from Sein gas field in the Andaman Sea earlier this year. Two development wells on the field’s single wellhead platform produce a combined 35 MMcfd of dry gas that is routed to Yadana field facilities. Sein went on production in March 2006.

The fields are on Blocks M-5 and M-6. Chevron Corp., which has an interest in the fields, said Yadana’s output averaged 632 MMcfd in the last 5 months of 2005.
