BP starts first gas production from Angelin project offshore Trinidad

BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT) has started production of first gas from its Angelin development located 60km off the south-east coast of Trinidad at a water depth of 65m.

BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT) has started production of first gas from its Angelin development located 60km off the south-east coast of Trinidad at a water depth of 65m.

The third major project to begin production for BP worldwide this year, Angelin was originally discovered by the El Diablo well in 1995 and includes a new platform and four wells.

The start-up of Angelin follows Constellation in the US Gulf of Mexico and the second stage of the West Nile Delta development offshore Egypt.

BPTT’s 15th installation offshore Trinidad & Tobago, the new platform is capable of producing 600 million standard cubic feet a day.

Angelin is the next step in fulfilling our long-term development plan in Trinidad.”

A new 21km pipeline will transport gas from the platform to the existing Serrette hub.

BP Upstream chief executive Bernard Looney said: “Angelin is BP ’s 22nd new upstream project to come online in just over three years and reflects our commitment to do what said we would, safely and competitively.”

The Angelin project is supported by the application of ocean bottom cable (OBC) seismic acquisition with advanced processing and allows improved imaging of its reservoirs in the Columbus basin offshore Trinidad.

BPTT regional president Claire Fitzpatrick said: “Angelin is the next step in fulfilling our long-term development plan in Trinidad and will play an important role in enabling us to deliver our production commitments, which could potentially include up to $8bn of investment in several more major projects over the next ten years.”

In 2017, BP commenced production from two new gas projects Juniper and Trinidad Onshore Compression, in Trinidad.

The Cassia Compression and Matapal developments were recently sanctioned and are expected to become operational in 2021 and 2022, respectively.

In a separate development, BP has awarded a contractor lease-and-operate deal to Golar LNG ’s subsidiary Gimi MS for an FLNG unit, Gimi, to be used on the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project located off Mauritania and Senegal.

Expected to start production in 2022, Gimi will liquefy gas as part of the first phase of the project.
