Total, Novatek JV starts up Termokarstovoye gas field
Terneftegas, a joint venture between Novatek (51%) and Total (49%), launched the Termokarstovoye gas and gas condensate field into commercial production.
The field, located in the Yamalo Nenets Autonomous District of the Russian Federation, will produce around 6.6 million cubic meters of gas and 20 thousand barrels of condensate per day, with a combined production capacity of 65 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day, Total said in a statement.
This is the first project Total executed together with its partner in Russia, Novatek, with whom it is jointly developing the Yamal LNG project, said Michael Borrell, Total’s Senior Vice President Exploration & Production, Europe and Central Asia.
The project infrastructure is adapted to arctic conditions and includes a gas gathering network, a gas treatment plant, a gas condensate de-ethanization facility and export pipelines.
