PORT OF SPAIN, Dec. 20 -- BP PLC reported the start of natural gas production from its Cashima field off Trinidad and Tobago. The Cashima development comprises Cashima field, discovered in 2001, and North East Queens Beach field, discovered in 1975.

The two fields are on the South East Galeota Block in the Columbus basin in 270 ft of water.

Cashima has been put into production less than a month after first gas production from nearby Mango field.

Cashima initially will produce 250 MMcfd but will increase its production to 750 MMcfd by mid-2008.

BP Trinidad & Tobago holds 100% interest in the development. The field was developed using a single unmanned platform with the capacity to produce from nine wells. Gas is to be exported through an 11-mile, 26-in. pipeline to the Amhertsia gas processing hub via Flamboyant field.

As with Mango production, gas from Cashima will supply both Atlantic LNG's liquefaction plant for export as LNG to international and domestic markets.
