Total E&P Nederland announces the start-up of its offshore K4-Z field, which is part of the production licence K4a, located some 140 kilometers northwest of Den Helder in the Dutch North Sea. The project, operated in a 50/50 partnership with EBN, has a production potential of approximately 1,700,000 Nm³/d (11,500 boe/d).

The K4-Z field was discovered back in 1974. Being a marginal field, not able to sustain important development costs, it was lying dormant until the Dutch Government instated the marginal field policy plus an accelerated depreciation measurement in 2010, rendering the development economically attractive.

To develop the reserves, a new 2 wells subsea completion has been installed at the K4-Z location, 17 kilometers west of the K5 Central Complex, at a water depth of 36 meters. The new subsea development is linked to the K5-A platform. The produced gas will be exported through the existing WGT pipeline to the Den Helder gas terminal and will be sold under an existing gas sales agreement.

The K4-Z project recently reached 1,000,000 man-hours from the beginning of the project without any lost-time safety incidents (LTI’s).
