Project type: Gas and condensates
Operator: Total (50%)
Partners: Tecpetrol de Argentina, Gazprom, YPFB Chaco
Start date: 2016
The Incahuasi gas field lies 5,600 meters below the surface of the Andean foothills in Bolivia. Developing a field in this rugged mountainous region is a huge technical challenge.
A real technical test on the steep inclines of the Andean foothills
Accessing a gas field buried at more than 5,600 meters beneath the Andean foothills is a huge technical challenge. To meet it, Total leverages all of its expertise, laying nearly 150 km of pipeline along a rugged route through steep hills with inclines that exceed 30°.
Worksite safety is our primary concern as we ensure the completion of this ambitious project. To this end, we have set up an on-site Health, Safety & Environment training center. Production has started in June 2019 and since then, Incahuasi’s four wells and treatment plant have produced 11 million cubic meters of gas and nearly 10,200 barrels of condensate per day.
