Total: Twenty years since first oil on North Alwyn platform

Twenty years ago first oil was produced from North Alwyn platform, in the UK North Sea. The Alwyn field (100% Total), which lies 440 kilometres north-east of Aberdeen was brought on-stream in November 1987. North Alwyn is currently one of the largest oil and gas processing platforms in the UK North Sea acting as a gathering hub for nearby fields with a production of around 140,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
