Chevron has started production at the Alder field in the North Sea offshore Scotland, more than 40 years after the field’s discovery. Alder is a single subsea well tied back by a 17-mile pipeline to the ConocoPhillips-operated Britannia Platform, in which Chevron holds a 32.38% working interest. With a design capacity of 110 MMcf/D of natural gas and 14,000 B/D of condensate, Alder is expected to ramp up production over the coming months. Chevron is the operator with a 73.684% interest, with ConocoPhillips holding the remainder.
