bp Trinidad and Tobago LLC (bpTT) delivered first gas from its Cassia C development 57 km off the southeast coast of Trinidad.
Cassia C is bpTT’s first offshore compression platform. It will enable bpTT to access and produce low pressure gas resources from currently producing fields in the Greater Cassia area. The platform is connected to the existing Cassia hub. bpTT operates in about 680,000 acres off Trinidad’s east coast and now has 16 offshore platforms and two onshore processing plants.
Cassia C is expected to produce, at peak, about 200-300 MMscfd.
The platform’s jacket was built at Trinidad Offshore Fabricators (TOFCO) and installed in 2020. Its topside structure was built in the McDermott fabrication yard, Altamira, Mexico, and was installed in 2021.
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 Co.
