Nov 14, 2008 01:00 AM

Total has announced that three successful exploration wells have been drilled in Thailand and that a new phase of development of the Bongkot North Field has been launched.
Three exploration wells, Ton Sak 7, Ton Sak 8 and Ton Son 2, have been drilled on the Bongkot offshore concession in the Gulf of Thailand, all of which discovered commercial quantities of gas and condensates. Two of these discoveries, Ton Sak 7 and Ton Sak 8 have been sanctioned for development.

The Greater Bongkot North field currently produces around 600 mm cfpd of gas and 20,000 bpd of condensates from 20 wellhead platforms and a central complex. Two additional wellhead platforms are currently being constructed and should go into production in 2009.
The newly sanctioned phase will add a further 3 wellhead platforms, bringing the total number to 25. This new phase of development will enter into production in 2010 and extend the plateau well into the next decade.

The third discovery, Ton Son 2, will be included in a subsequent development phase. Bongkot has been in production since 1993, it is operated by PTT Exploration and Production (PTTEP), with 44.45 % interest. The remaining stakes are owned by Total (33.33 %) and BG Asia Pacific (22.22 %).
The Group's primary asset in Thailand is the Bongkot gas and condensates field (33.33 %) where its share of production reached 41,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in 2007.
