Total E&P Norge

Total E&P Norge started drilling an exploration well at the Shango prospect in the Norwegian North Sea. The field prospect lies approximately 5 km from the producing Skirne field, also operated by Total. Shango is a structural prospect with the Middle Jurassic Hugin formation reservoir as its primary target, which has proved to be of commercial quality in the neighboring Skirne field. The well sits at a water depth of 120 m. Total’s (40%) joint venture partners are Faroe Petroleum (20%), Centrica Resources Norge (20%), and Det Norske Oljeselskap (20%).
