At an extreme pressure of 1,100 bar and temperature of 190 degrees Celsius, the Elgin-Franklin development project is the largest High Pressure/High Temperature (HP/HT) development in the world.

Field Development

In 1995, project partners decided to jointly develop the fields as a hub, due to their close proximity and shared HP/HT status. Approved by the UK authorities in 1997, field development includes an unmanned wellhead platform on both Elgin and Franklin tied-back to a shared processing and export platform. Estimated costs for the project reached US $2.86 billion.

Comprised of a steel jacket and four legs, the Franklin wellhead platform accommodates nine platform slots. Also consisting of a steel jacket and four legs, the Elgin wellhead platform can accommodate 12 platform slots.

Linked to the Elgin platform via a bridge, the Processing, Utilities and Quarters (PUQ) platform separates recovered condensates from natural gas, processing the former into commercial quality. The PUW platform is located on the Elgin field and is linked to Franklin by an interfield pipeline bundle.

Built by a consortium of Technip, McDermott and Barmac, the platform is based on the TPG 500 jackup concept of a self-elevating and self-piling jackup facility with a triangular hull atop the pilings. With a 70-person operational crew, the Elgin PUQ can accommodate up to 97 personnel.

Production

Production started from Elgin in March 2001, and Franklin began producing in August 2001. Peak production for hub facility is 280,000 boepd, or 175,000 bpd of condensate and 547.4 MMcf/d (15.5 MMcm/d) of gas. The PUQ includes water treatment capabilities of 8,000 bpd, gas compression power of 115MW and power generation of 60MW.

With a field life of more than two decades, Elgin-Franklin production is scheduled to run through 2022. Average daily production for the Elgin and Franklin fileds is around 230,000 barrels of oil equivalent.

Commercial-quality gas is processed offshore and transported to the Bacton terminal in Norfolk via the Shearwater Elgin Area Line (SEAL) pipeline. Condensate is transported via the Graben Area Export Line (GAEL) and the Forties Pipeline System to Cruden Bay and ultimately to Kinneil for processing.

Satellite Success

Situated on Blocks 29/4d and 29/5b, Glenelg was discovered by the 29/4d-4 exploration well in 1999. Also a HP/HT field, Glenelg is located 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) southwest of Elgin and in waters measuring 328 feet (100 meters) deep. In 2006, the Elgin wellhead platform drilled an extended reach well, reaching 18,373 feet (5,600 meters) below the seafloor, to the Glenelg field. The well was tied-back to the Elgi-Franklin facilities. With daily rates expected to reach 30,000 boepd, production commenced from Glenelg in March 2006.

Discovered in 2003 by the 29/5b-F7z well, the West Franklin satellite field is located in Block 29/4d and 29/5b, 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) west of the Franklin wellhead platform in 305 feet (93 meters) of water. At a total depth of 18,875 feet (5,750 meters), flow from this well reached 35 MMcf/d (1 MMcm/d) of gas and 2,000 bpd of condensate. The field is developed via the Elgin-Franklin facility.

Field development quickly followed, including a 1-mile (1.5-kilometer) step-out well drilled from the Franklin platform to tap the reservoirs of West Franklin. Drilled to a depth of 20,013 feet (6,100 meters), this well -- with a temperature of 197 degrees Celsius and pressure of 1,155 bar -- is hottest and highest pressure well in the world. Production commenced from West Franklin in 2007, and daily production is 91.8 MMcf/d (2.6 MMcm/d) or 20,000 boepd.

In September 2008, Total announced that an appraisal well on West Franklin proved the field significantly larger than first predicted. Now, recoverable resources for West Franklin are estimated at 200 MMboe, and daily production is expected to more than double to 45,000 boepd. Additional drilling is required to bring this field to full production.

Total Restarts Production at Elgin
Type: Operator Update

Mar. 2013 - Production at the Elgin and Franklin platforms was restarted by Total March 9. Rates will be increased gradually to approximately 70,000 boepd. Total, the field operator, was forced to evacuate both platforms in May 2012 due to a gas leak from the Elgin G4 well which had been shut-in for several months. An investigation identified stress corrosion that was unique to the G4 well and the lessons learned have been shared with the UK authorities. The company plans to drill additional development well to bring field production back to where it was before the incident. Area reserves are estimated to be in excess of 500 MMboe.

Executive Approval Needed to Restart Elgin
Type: Operator Update

Feb. 2013 - Operations at the Elgin/Franklin development in the UK North Sea should restart soon according to Total. A leak from the G4 well last March caused the shutdown and subsequent well intervention operations. According to the company, the leak has been attributed to down-hole corrosion caused a reaction of bromide and thread compound. Total maintains that the failure is unique to the G4 well and was not caused by age. Production from Elgin is expected to reach 70,000 boepd by the end of 2013 and return to the pre-shutdown level of 140,000 boepd by 2015. The company is waiting on final approval to restart production from the UK's Health and Safety Executive.

Total: Elgin Cement Plug In Place by Mid-September
Type: Status Update

Aug. 2012 - Total reported that it expects to install a cemet plug, designed to seal a well, at its Elgin North Sea platform. Since the leak was stopped mid-May, Total and its contractors "have now restarted the essential safety and support systems on board the Elgin complex and the adjacent Rowan Viking (430' ILC) drilling rig," the company said in a statement.

Total Confirms Well Intervention at Elgin Complex
Type: Status Update

May. 2012 - Total has confirmed the success of the G4 well intervention at the Elgin complex. To regain control of the well, heavy mud was pumped into the G4 well from the West Phoenix (UDW semisub). The leak was stopped, stated the company. Following the success of the well intervention, the next phase will be to re-man the Elgin complex and restart the Rowan Viking (430' ILC) drilling rig in order to set cement plugs in the G4 well. This phase, aiming at completing the plugging and permanent abandonment procedure of the G4 well, will take several weeks. Once the first cement plug is set in the G4 well by the Rowan Viking, the drilling of the ongoing relief well with the Sedco 714 (mid-water semisub) will be stopped. In consultation with the appropriate authorities, it has been decided that drilling a second relief well by the Rowan Gorilla V (400' ILC) jackup is no longer necessary and has therefore been cancelled.

Total Begins Elgin Well-Intervention Operation
Type: Status Update

May. 2012 - Total has started a well-intervention operation to stop the leak from the G4 well at its Elgin complex in the North Sea. The well intervention operation consists of pumping heavy mud into the well from the main support vessel, the West Phoenix (UDW semisub) drilling rig via a temporary pipeline connected to the G4 wellhead. Depending on the precise conditions inside the well, the operation and subsequent observation period will last a few days before it is possible to confirm whether the operation has been a success, Total said.

Total to Begin Elgin Kill Op in Near Future
Type: Status Update

May. 2012 - Total reported that the West Phoenix (UDW semisub) drilling rig has been positioned about 99 feet (30 meters) away from its North Sea Elgin platform, where a gas leak was discovered in late March. Dependent on weather, the well intervention should start "within a very few days," according to the operator. Additionally, drilling of the first back-up relief well by the Sedco 714 (mid-water semisub) is still progressing as per plan, added the company.

Total Spuds Relief Well, Preps Well Kill at Elgin
Type: Status Update

Apr. 2012 - Total has sent a team of engineers to its Elgin platform to conduct further preparations for work needed to end an ongoing natural gas leak. In addition to the well-kill operation, the operator has begun drilling one of two planned relief wells.

Total's Elgin Relief Well May Take More Than 6 Months
Type: Status Update

Apr. 2012 - Total estimates that it may take more than six months to drill relief wells near the Elgin oil rig in the Norwegian North Sea to stop a natural gas leak. The company is currently drilling a relief well to cut off the gas at the level of the reservoir at about one kilometer from the problematic well. Total plans to drill two relief wells, the second one acting as a backup. Another solution is also in the works: pumping heavy mud into the well to balance the pressure and end the leak. The Elgin/Franklin project has been shut-in since Monday, March 26.

Total Mobilizing Rigs for Elgin Relief Well
Type: Status Update

Mar. 2012 - Total is mobilizing two rigs to drill a relief well in an attempt to halt a gas leak from the Elgin platform in the North Sea, according to the U.K Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). The firm is also seeking a second solution of pumping heavy mud into the well, DECC added. "We believe the hydrocarbons are coming from a rock formation above the reservoir at a depth of 4,000 meters (13,120 feet)," a spokesperson for the firm told Rigzone. The Elgin/Franklin project has been shut-in since Monday, March 26.

Total Believes Gas Coming from Rocks above Elgin Reservoir
Type: Status Update

Mar. 2012 - Total may have confirmed the source of the gas leak at its Elgin platform in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. The firm insists that the still-alight flare on the platform does not pose any immediate risk. After reports early Thursday morning that Total had a "good idea" of the source of the gas leak on its Elgin platform, a spokesperson for the firm told Rigzone: "We believe the hydrocarbons are coming from a rock formation above the reservoir at a depth of 4,000 meters [13,120 feet]." On Wednesday evening, Total released a press statement explaining the situation regarding the flare on the Elgin platform. "The flare is an integral part of the platform's safety system. In an emergency, it is used to safely evacuate all the gas from the platform. During the incident, it performed this task perfectly, allowing everyone to evacuate safely," said Total. "The flare is still lit because when the platform is shut down and de-pressurised in an emergency, it cannot be fully purged as done in a controlled shutdown. This is perfectly normal. Some liquids do remain in the system and these liquids are now evaporating. As these liquids evaporate, the flow of hydrocarbons to the flare will exhaust itself and the flare should burn out."

Shell Evacuates North Sea Workers near Elgin/Franklin Gas Leak
Type: Status Update

Mar. 2012 - Shell has removed oil workers from two of its North Sea rigs due to their proximity to Total’s Elgin/Franklin platform, where a gas leak occurred Sunday. According to its press statement, Shell reported that it had reduced personnel on its Shearwater platform and the nearby Noble Hans Deul (400' ILC) rig. Drilling operations on the Noble Hans Deul (400' ILC) rig, which is located offshore Scotland 138 miles (222 kilometers) east of Aberdeen, have been suspended and the wells "left in a safe state," said Shell. "While the move is purely precautionary and primarily driven by the prevailing weather conditions, and both facilities remain operational, it has been decided to reduce numbers to a more manageable level until the full situation surrounding the Elgin leak has been established," said a Shell spokesperson. On Monday night, Total said that two aerial surveillance flights from an Oil Spill Response had confirmed a gas sheen on the water. Total said that two more OSRL flights would be carried out Tuesday. Experts have been mobilized from elsewhere in the Total Group in order to help with the incident, the firm reported. The "precise cause of the leak remains unclear," added Total.
