Oil major Total sees growth in North Sea output with Edradour & Glenlivet start-up

“We have completed this project ahead of schedule and 30 percent under the initial budget,” Arnaud Breuillac, Total’s president for exploration and production, said in a statement.

The Edradour and Glenlivet development is near the French oil and gas giant’s existing Laggan-Tormore fields which started production in February 2016.

Total’s UK unit operates Edradour & Glenlivet with a 60 percent interest, alongside partners DONG E&P and SSE E&P which each have 20 percent stakes.
