BP Trinidad and Tobago (bpTT) has announced that they have begun natural gas production at the Serrette field which is offshore of Trinidad.
bpTT says that the natural gas is being produced at 280 feet under water off Trinidad’s south east coast and that the company holds one hundred percent interest in production at the field.
With the Serratte platform underway in production, bpTT now has 13 offshore Trinidad platforms in operation at this time. BPTT operates in 904,000 acres off Trinidad’s east coast. It has 13 offshore platforms and two onshore processing facilities and produces an average of 450,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day.
Last month BP was awarded 100 per cent interest in two new deepwater exploration and production blocks (blocks 23(a) and TTDAA14) by the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
bpTT President, Norman Christie, said, “The completion of Serrette demonstrates our commitment to local content. BPTT is proud to continue the tradition of local design and fabrication that we initiated with the Cannonball platform in 2001. We have also been able to refine the standardization concept by applying the lessons learned to improve design and delivery of each platform.”
