(OM) Wintershall Dea has issued a brief update on the Fénix subsea development in the Cuenca Marina Austral 1 (CMA-1) concession, offshore Argentina.
The company is a partner to operator TotalEnergies: Pan American Energy is the other co-venturer.
Work on Fénix is progressing as planned, with the first concrete blocks that will support the subsea pipeline installed on the seafloor in July.
Laying is now under way of the subsea pipeline that will connect the future Fénix platform to the existing Vega Pléyade platform. Once online, production from Fénix should build towards a peak of 10 MMcm/d.
CMA-1 currently accounts for 15% of Argentina’s natural gas production.
