BP goes ahead with Angelin project in Trinidad and Tobago

6 Jun 2017

BP Trinidad and Tobago has decided to go ahead with its Angelin offshore gas project, off the south-east coast of Trinidad. Angelin was originally discovered by the El Diablo well in 1995 and appraised by the La Novia well in 2006. The company will start drilling four wells in the third quarter of 2018 and first gas is expected in the first quarter of 2018. The Angelin project will have a production capacity of around 600 mcf/d (17 mcm/d, or 6.2 bcm/year).

In addition, BP has announced two significant gas discoveries with the Savannah and Macadamia exploration wells, offshore Trinidad. The results of these wells have unlocked approximately 2 Tcf (56.5 bcm) of gas in place to underpin new developments in these areas. Based on the success of the Savannah well, BP expects to develop these reservoirs via future tieback to the Juniper platform that is due to come online mid-2017. The Macadamia discovery is expected to support a new platform after 2020.
