Aug. 23, 2010 - PRLog -- The Franklin Unit comprises the Franklin field and the West Franklin satellite field. The Franklin is an offshore gas unit located in the block 29/5b in the South Central Graben area in the UK sector of the North Sea. It is located 240km east of Aberdeen, the coastal city in the UK, in 93m deep water. Elf Exploration UK Ltd. is the operator of the unit. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Total S.A. The Franklin field was discovered in January 1986 and is one of the world's largest high temperature-high pressure units. The Franklin field produces natural gas and condensate from its two reservoirs Fulmar and Pentland in the block.

E. F. Oil and Gas Ltd. is the major equity holder in the Franklin Unit with 46.173%. E. F. Oil and Gas Ltd. is a company owned by Total E&P UK Ltd. and Gaz de France. The other partners include Eni Elgin/Franklin Ltd., BG International (CNS) Ltd., Ruhrgas UK Exploration and Production Ltd., Esso Exploration and Production UK Ltd., Texaco Britain Ltd., Dyas UK Ltd. and Sumitomo Corporation of Japan.

In January 2003, the West Franklin satellite field was discovered using a deviated well from Franklin. It is located in the block 29/5b and 29/5c, 4km west of the Franklin Well-Head Platform in 93m of water. It was developed via the Elgin-Franklin facility. It started producing from September 2007 and was commingled with the existing Franklin production.

Both Franklin and West Franklin produce natural gas with condensate. The condensate has a quality of 44.06o API with sulphur content of less than 0.1%.

Franklin produced an overall 96.99 billion cubic feet (bcf) of natural gas and 14.1 million barrels (mmbbls) of condensate during 2009. The owners of the unit had planned to expand the capacity of the satellite unit within the next three years.

The life of Franklin Unit was estimated to be around 20 years with end of production in 2022. However, with the addition of the West Franklin reserves, the unit is supposed to continue producing till 2030. The unit is expected to generate $13.7 billion in revenues (undiscounted) during its remaining life (starting January 1, 2010) and is expected to yield an IRR of around 40.9%.
