engineering careers  First gas extracted by Total from gas field west of Shetland

The first gas field west of Shetland has begun production, being operated by French energy company Total. The Laggan-Tomore field, in deep and challenging offshore waters which are nearer to the Atlantic Ocean than the North Sea, will produce the gas equivalent of 90,000 barrels of oil a day. Arnaud Breuillac, Total’s President of Exploration and Production, said that the area had great potential and that Total is “boosting the United Kingdom’s production capacity and Europe’s energy security.”
