Trinidad and Tobago: Gas Development BP Commences Maiden Gas Production from Angelin Project
BPTT’s 15th installation offshore Trinidad & Tobago is the firm’s new platform which has a production capacity of 600 million standard cubic feet per day. It is also BP’s third major project to commence production this year.
Trinidad and Tobago – BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT) have recently announced its first gas production from its Angelin development. The project was delivered on time and under budget. The Angelin development, originally discovered by the El Diablo well in 1995, includes a new platform and four wells. It is located 60 kilometres off the south-east coast of Trinidad in a water-depth of approximately 65 metres.
The new platform, BPTT’s 15th installation offshore Trinidad & Tobago, has a production capacity of 600 million standard cubic feet a day (mmscfd). Gas flows from the platform to the existing Serrette hub via a new 21-kilometre pipeline.
Angelin is BPTT’s first major project development supported by the application of ocean bottom cable (OBC) seismic acquisition with advanced processing, allowing enhanced imaging of its reservoirs in the Columbus basin offshore Trinidad.
BP started up two new gas projects in Trinidad – Juniper and Trinidad Onshore Compression – in 2017 and recently announced the sanction of another two developments – Cassia Compression and Matapal – expected to come onstream in 2021 and 2022 respectively. Angelin is BP’s third major upstream project start-up in 2019, following Constellation in the US Gulf of Mexico and the second stage of the West Nile Delta development offshore Egypt.
