France’s Total said Thursday it will include the offshore UK Glenlivet natural gas field in its development plan for the nearby Edradour gas field.

Total plans to convert the discovery well at Edradour into a subsea producer that will be tied back to the Laggan-Tormore flowline with a nearly 10 miles long production line.

Edradour is located in 984 feet of water in Block 206/4a.

Denmark-based Dong Energy will divest 5 percent of its Edradour stake to Total.

The Glenlivet development pant calls for two wells completed through a four-slot subsea manifold that will be tied back to Laggan-Tormore pipelines with a 21 mile production line, DONG said.

The Glenlivet field is located in production licenses P1195 in Block 214/30 in 1,427 feet of water.

The partners had previously proposed tying Glenlivet back to Edradour.

Production at Edradour is slated to start in the fourth quarter of 2017 and reach a plateau rate of 17,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Projected production rates for Glenlivet have not been disclosed yet.

Dong will now hold 20 percent in four Total operated fields: Laggan, Tormore, Edradour and Glenlivet.

Total owns an operating stake of 80 percent in all four fields.

Total signed off on an integrated development plan for Laggan and Tormore in 2010.
