Total Now Progressing With Actions To Stop Gas Leak Incident At Elgin Platform

Total SA (TOT, TTFNF.PK, TTA.L) said it is now progressing with actions to stop a gas leak incident on the plugged G4 production well on Elgin platform. Further to the gas leak, the situation has been stable on site over the last five days, the company noted.

Total specified that two main solutions are being progressed. The first is to pump heavy mud directly into the well and the second is to drill relief wells to intervene at the source of the gas flow. The company is mobilizing all means to allow these options to be implemented.

The precise cause of the gas leak is still being investigated and efforts continue to bring it under control.

Total continues to actively monitor the situation by using satellites and surveillance spotter planes.
