US major ConocoPhillips
has submitted the $1.5 billion development plan of the Tommeliten Alpha field in the North Sea
to the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and the UK Oil & Gas Authority.
Tommeliten Alpha is a gas & condensate field located at a water depth of 75 m, approximately 25 km south-west of the Ekofisk field in the southern part of the Norwegian North Sea.
The plan for development and operation (PDO) of the Tommeliten Alpha assumes drilling
10 production wells, which will be connected via heated flowline to the infrastructure of the Ekofisk complex.

of oil equivalent, mainly comprising gas condensate.
