Total said it does not expect any oil production from the troubled Kashagan project in Kazakhstan this year.

The company also said its 2015 production is expected to be very low. 

Yves-Louis Darricarrere, head of exploration and production said, “What is clear is that no production can be expected in 2014, and in 2015 … it will be probably little.”

Production at the world’s biggest offshore oil find in 35 years started in September, but was halted in early October after the detection of gas leaks in the $50 billion project’s pipeline network.
