Natural gas production has started from Serrette field off Trinidad and Tobago, reported BP Trinidad & Tobago (BPTT), the field’s operator. Serrette lies in 280 ft of water off southeastern Trinidad.
Production from Serrette, a normally unmanned installation, is tied into BPTT’s Cassia B hub via a 26-in., 32-mile pipeline. The platform is expected to average 400 MMscfd of gas and associated condensate from five wells.
This facility’s production will supply the domestic market and Atlantic LNG's liquefaction plant for export as LNG to international markets, such as the US and Europe.
BPTT holds a 100% interest in Serrette field. The company operates in 904,000 acres off eastern Trinidad. It has 13 offshore platforms and 2 onshore processing facilities and produces an average of 450,000 boe/d.
