BP starts producing gas from Juniper field in Trinidad and Tobago

16 Aug 2017

BP has started gas production from its Juniper gas field in Trinidad and Tobago, as approved in August 2014.

The Juniper facility will take gas from the Corallita and Lantana fields located off the south east coast of Trinidad. The US$2bn development will include five subsea wells and will have a production capacity of approximately 590 mcf/d (about 17 mcm/d or 6.1 bcm/year). Juniper is BP Trinidad and Tobago’s 14th offshore production facility.

BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT) is a joint venture of BP (70%) and Repsol (30%). Another major project in Trinidad, the Trinidad Onshore Compression project, began operations in April 2017. In June 2017 BPTT announced that it had sanctioned development of the Angelin gas field, which is expected to start production in late 2019. BPTT also announced two gas discoveries, which may support future developments offshore Trinidad.
