BP have announced the sanction for two major gas developments off the coast of Trinidad: Cassia Compression and Matapal.

The Cassia C will be located next to the existing Cassia B platform and will produce low pressure gas reserves from currently-producing fields

Cassia Compression
The first of these, Cassia Compression, will enable BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT) to produce low pressure gas reserves from currently-producing fields. It will involve constructing a new platform, Cassia C, around 57 km south east of Trinidad. 

This will be BPTT’s 16th offshore facility and will compress gas routed from the Greater Cassia Area, before exporting via the existing Cassia B platform, located alongside it. 

The platform is expected to produce a throughput capacity of 1.2 billion standard cubic feet of gas per day. It’s due to be fabricated in La Brea, Trinidad and the topside structure in Altamira, Mexico. First gas is expected in the third quarter of 2021. 

BPTT Regional President Claire Fitzpatrick said: “The Cassia Compression project will be important in maintaining the stability of Trinidad’s gas production and the supply to downstream customers and Atlantic LNG. The final investment decision for this project was made possible with the conclusion of the first phase of negotiations with the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, which included resolution of several commercial issues.”

The Matapal project is tied to the existing Juniper platform and will develop gas from three wells.

The project is aimed to process the gas discovered by the Savannah exploration well in 2017. It’s expected to have a production capacity of 400 million standard cubic feet of gas a day, with first gas expected in 2022.
