BP receives go-ahead for gas project offshore Trinidad
Fabrication is proposed to begin in the fourth quarter of 2014

The project will feature the construction of a normally unmanned platform together with corresponding subsea infrastructure, a first for BP Trinidad and Tobago.

“Juniper demonstrates BPTT’s commitment to Trinidad and Tobago over the long-term,” said Norman Christie, said BPTT regional president. “This development is an important part of the future for BPTT because it will assist the company in meeting its natural gas commitments to the market. It is also an important step change for BPTT as it introduces subsea infrastructure to continue the development of its resources in the Columbus Basin.”

Fabrication is proposed to begin in the fourth quarter of 2014.

The Juniper facility will take gas from the Corallita and Lantana fields located 80 kilometres off the south east coast of Trinidad in water-depth of approximately 110 kilometres.

The development will include five subsea wells and will have a production capacity of approximately 590 million standard cubic feet a day (mmscfd). Gas from Juniper will flow to the Mahogany B hub via a new ten kilometre flowline.

Juniper will become BPTT’s fourteenth offshore production facility.

Drilling is due to commence in 2015 and first gas from the facility is expected in 2017.
