bp Trinidad and Tobago LLC’s (bpTT) Cassia C project delivered its first gas safely.
This project is bpTT’s first offshore compression platform and largest offshore facility. It will enable the company to access and produce low-pressure gas resources in the Greater Cassia area. The platform is bpTT’s sixteenth offshore facility. Which is connected to the Cassia hub, located off the southeast coast of Trinidad.
bpTT expects Cassia C to produce 200 to 300 million standard cubic feet per day of gas. This production will go towards meeting bpTT’s gas supply commitments. And it will also sustain Trinidad and Tobago’s LNG and petrochemical industries.
David Campbell, president of bpTT, said: “The first gas from Cassia C is an important milestone for bp in Trinidad and Tobago. This first offshore compression facility will allow us to unlock new resources and bring much-needed gas to market. I am immensely proud of the teams who have worked hard to get this facility up and running.”
Ewan Drummond, bp’s senior vice president of projects, production, and operations, said: “I am proud that we have managed to deliver this project while keeping our people safe during a global pandemic. Cassia C is a great example of bp’s resilient hydrocarbon strategy, providing the energy the world needs now and helping us invest in the energy transition.”
Cassia C installation
The organization built the Cassia C platform’s legs and support frame at TOFCO (Trinidad Offshore Fabricators) and installed in 2020. Its upper structure was built at McDermott’s fabrication yard in Altamira, Mexico, and established in 2021.
The Cassia C project outlines the direction and pace of the company’s activities to develop hydrocarbon resources in its licensed offshore areas in Trinidad and Tobago. bpTT’s Zone Development Plan includes a combination of exploration, development projects, and activities focused on maximizing production from these zones.
Cassia C’s first gas follows the recent authorization of the Cypre development. And also the execution of the gas supply agreement with the National Gas Company.
