BP launches gas production from Cassia C platform off Trinidad and Tobago

A unit of energy giant BP has launched gas production at its Cassia C platform offshore Trinidad and Tobago to supply the country’s LNG and petrochemical industries.

Cassia C is BP Trinidad and Tobago’s first offshore compression platform and its biggest offshore facility and would enable the firm to access and produce low pressure gas resources from the Greater Cassia Area, BP said in a statement.

The platform, BPTT’s 16th offshore facility, has a connection with the existing Cassia hub which lies some 56 kilometers off Trinidad’s southeast coast.

BP expects Cassia C to produce, at peak, about 200-300 million standard cubic feet a day of gas.

Production would go towards meeting BPTT’s gas supply commitments and would be important to sustaining T&T’s LNG and petrochemical industries, it said.

First gas from Cassia C follows the recent sanction of the Cypre development and the execution of the gas supply agreement with the National Gas Company.

NGC is a shareholder in the Point Fortin LNG export plant, operated by Atlantic LNG, while Shell and BP have the biggest stakes in the plant’s four trains.

The Point Fortin facility has a capacity of about 15 million tonnes per annum of LNG but it has been experiencing supply issues due to dwindling domestic gas reserves.

Earlier this year, the three firms signed a heads of agreement with the government of Trinidad as they work toward a restructuring of Atlantic LNG.
