LOS ANGELES, May 11 -- BHP Billiton said it started natural gas production from the Angostura Gas Project off Trinidad and Tobago, with the project delivering on schedule and budget.

“The Angostura Gas Project is an important addition to our portfolio,” said BHP Billiton Petroleum Chief Executive J. Michael Yeager. “It will triple production at our Trinidad and Tobago business over the next year.”

The export platform has a design capacity of 280 MMcfd of gas and is alongside the firm’s existing facilities within the Greater Angostura field.

The development also includes modifications made to the existing Angostura facilities and the installation of flow lines.

National Gas Co. of Trinidad & Tobago Ltd. will take delivery of the gas and transport it into their 36-in. Northeastern Offshore Pipeline.

Greater Angostura field includes oil and gas discoveries at Aripo, Kairi, and Canteen. BHP holds a 45% interest in the field, with Total SA holding 30%, and Chaoyang, 25%.
