Total starts Myanmar gas project
French energy giant and LNG player Total has started up production from the Badamyar project, located offshore 220 kilometers south of Yangon in Myanmar.
Total said in a statement on Tuesday the project would enable an extension of the Yadana gas field’s 8 billion cubic meters per year production plateau beyond 2020.
The Badamyar project involves the installation of a new wellhead platform connected to the Yadana production facilities, and the drilling of 4 horizontal wells to develop Badamyar gas field as a satellite of Yadana. The project also includes a new compression platform.
Total is the operator of the project with a 31.2% interest. Its partners are Chevron-Unocal (28.3%), PTTEP (25.5%) and the national company MOGE (15%).
