Trinidad to get a gas compression unit from BPTT
Petroleumworld 02 21 2018
Last year BP announced the start of an onshore gas compression project in Trinidad and Tobago.
London-based BP plc Group upstream CEO Bernard Looney, in a conference call with investors earlier this month, said: “We expect to FID a large compression project in Trinidad, two subsea tiebacks in the North Sea, and the next two projects in our series of developments in India, and there may be more beyond that.” In oil and gas industry language, to ‘FID' a project means to give it a go-ahead via a final investment decision (FID), reported Trinidad Express.
By “large” the BP upstream CEO meant the natural gas output from the project would be significantly higher than the 200 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (mmscfd) that is the nameplate capacity of the Trinidad Onshore Compression (TROC) project.
Original the Trinidad Onshore Compression (TROC) project, had the potential to produce about more than the 200m cu ft/day
The project, managed by BP's local unit, BP Trinidad and Tobago LLC, is one of the major upstream ventures the company expects to bring online in 2018.
The Trinidad Onshore Compression (TROC) project is expected to improve production capacity by raising output from low-pressure wells in the company's existing acreage in the Columbus Basin, located off the coast of Trinidad and Tobago. The process aims to use an additional compressor at the Point Fortin Atlantic liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in the country, the Economist reported last year.
The venture is part of BP's plan to bring 500,000 barrels/day of new production capacity online in 2018. In 2017, the company started production from its Juniper platform off the coast of Trinidad and Tobago—BP Trinidad and Tobago's 14th offshore installation. BP operates in 904,000 acres off Trinidad's east coast and has two onshore processing facilities in the country.
