Total announces discovery of gas condensate


Total Exploration Senior Vice-President, Kevin McLachlan, has announced the discovery of new gas condensate on Brulpadda by the French energy giant.

The Brulpadda prospect is located on Block 11B/12B 175km off the Southern coast of South Africa.

According to Offshore Technology, the Brulpadda well was drilled by Total using a new drilling ship and encountered 57m of net gas condensate pay in Lower Cretaceous reservoirs.

After the main objective was achieved, the well was deepened to a final depth of 3,633m and has also been successful in the Brulpadda-deep prospect.

The Block 11B/12B in the Outeniqua Basin is operated by Total with a 45% working interest and covers a 19,000km² area, with water depths ranging from 200 to 1,800m.

Meanwhile, Total is handling the block in partnership with Qatar Petroleum which holds 25%, CNR international (20%) and a South African consortium, Main Street (10%).

Vice-president McLachlan said, “With this discovery, Total has opened a new world-class gas and oil play and is well positioned to test several follow-on prospects on the same block.”
