Tempa Rossa is an oil field located in the Alta Valle del Sauro, in the heart of the Basilicata region, in southern Italy, and is the main activity of TotalEnergies EP Italia (operator with 50%), in partnership with Shell Italia E&P and Mitsui E&P Italia. The plant has a daily production capacity of approximately 50,000 barrels of oil, 230,000 m³ of natural gas, 240 tons of LPG and 80 tons of sulfur. Tempa Rossa also extends to Taranto, where the crude oil is sent via the existing Val d’Agri – Taranto oil pipeline for storage and shipping by sea. The Tempa Rossa production site covers an area of 27 hectares at an altitude of 1,050 meters.
Maersk H2S Safety Services Italia Srl, located in Viggiano, Potenza, was founded in 1997 due to the high concentration of H2S in the Italian wells. The main competencies of the Italian base focus on onshore drilling, safety services in general, and providing safety representatives on-site. Maersk H2S Safety Services Italia is part of the Maersk H2S Safety Services Group, a global provider of gas safety services.
“We are excited to be given the trust and opportunity by TotalEnergies EP Italia to be a part of a significant team at the Tempa Rossa production site, a prominent oil and gas landmark in southern Italy.
