Ladol

BP said its subsidiary, BP Trinidad and Tobago LLC today announced the sanction for the development of its Angelin offshore gas project.

The project will feature the construction of a new platform – bpTT’s 15th offshore production facility – 60 kilometres off the south-east coast of Trinidad in water-depth of approximately 65 metres.

The development will include four wells and will have a production capacity of approximately 600 million standard cubic feet of gas a day (mmscfd). Gas from Angelin will flow to the Serrette platform hub via a new 21 kilometre pipeline.

Drilling is due to commence in Q3 2018 and first gas from the facility is expected in 1Q 2019.

BPTT Regional President Norman Christie said: “We are pleased to be able to announce the sanction of the Angelin project which was made possible due to the execution of a new gas sales contract with the National Gas Company. Successful completion of these negotiations was important not only to the sanction of Angelin but will also underpin a further US$5-$6 billion in potential future investments over the next five years. These investments are important to increasing indigenous national gas production and bringing more stability to gas supply to the downstream and Atlantic.”
