Total has started production from the Vega Pleyade gas and condensate field offshore the Tierra del Fuego region of Argentina. It is the world’s southern-most gas development, the company said. The project consists of a wellhead platform in 164 ft of water, which is tied back to the company-operated Rio Cullen and Cañadon Alfa onshore treatment facilities. Vega Pleyade has a production capacity of 353 MMcf/D of gas (70,000 BOE/D). Total is the operator with a 37.5% interest in the project. Wintershall Energía (37.5%) and Pan American Energy (25%) are the other participants.
