Elf Petroleum Asia bv, a subsidiary of Elf Aquitaine (NYSE : Elf), announces the start-up of production on the Maharaja-Lela field on February 20, 1999. Elf Petroleum Asia bv is the operator with a 37.5% interest in the field.

The off-shore gas condensate field is located on Block B in a water depth of 70 meters. Gas and liquids are sent 85 kilometers from two unmanned platforms to the onshore Elf Petroleum Asia terminal at Lumut, using advanced multi-phase flow technology.

Initial gas production, following separation, is around three million cubic meters per day. Crude oil and condensates is 2,000 barrels a day. The gas supplies the BLNG (Brunei Liquefied Natural Gas) plant, and the liquids are sent to the Seria terminal for export.

The development of Maharaja-Lela, which is the first field to be operated by the Group in Asia, was carried out in less than two years for a total cost of approximately $250 million.

This puts Elf in second place as a producer in Brunei and is in line with the Group's strategy of increasing operations outside its traditional production areas of Africa and Europe.
