BP Sanctions Gas Projects in Trinidad and Tobago
BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT) announced the sanction for two new gas developments offshore Trinidad, Cassia Compression and Matapal.
The Cassia Compression project will enable BPTT to access and produce low-pressure gas reserves from currently producing fields in the Greater Cassia Area, maximizing recovery from existing resources. The project will involve the construction of a new platform, Cassia C. Gas production from the Greater Cassia Area will be routed to Cassia C for compression before being exported via the adjacent existing Cassia B platform. First gas from the facility is expected in 3Q 2021.
Cassia C is located 40 miles off the southeast coast of Trinidad and Tobago. It will be BP’s third Cassia platform, handling gas coming in from its operations in the Columbus Basin. The facility will help maintain production rates from the hub to the onshore Atlantic LNG terminal. McDermott will provide engineering and long-lead procurement services for the platform, having won the contract for the project in March.
“The Cassia Compression project will be important in maintaining the stability of Trinidad’s gas production and the supply to downstream customers and Atlantic LNG,” BPTT Regional President Claire Fitzpatrick said in a statement.
Matapal will develop the gas resources discovered by BPTT in 2017 with the Savannah exploration well. The project will be a three-well subsea tieback to the existing Juniper platform. With production capacity of 400 MMscf/D, first gas from Matapal is expected in 2022.
