    Total (37.5%, operator) has given final investment approval to developing the Vega Pleyade gas and condensate field offshore, which will produce through three horizontal wells. Together with production from other Total-operated fields in the area, it will allow optimization of supply to the existing treatment plants and continuation of the plateau production of 130,000 boed. Vega Pleyade is offshore Tierra del Fuego in the Cuenca Marina Austral 1 (CMA-1) concession, which Total has operated since 1978. The field development plan consists of a wellhead platform in 50 m of water, which will tie into the Total-operated onshore Rio Cullen and Cañadon Alfa treatment plants via a 77-km pipeline. Separately, Total will also begin offshore drilling in 2014, both to boost production from Carina field, which started up in 2005, and to appraise the CMA-1 Block. Photo courtesy of Wintershall.
