DeNovo Energy Ltd., a subsidiary of Germany’s Proman AG, delivered first gas from Zandolie field. The unmanned minimum facility is DeNovo's second offshore field development to be completed in Block 1 (a) offshore the west coast of Trinidad and Tobago.
With an investment of $52 million, Zandolie was completed within 31 months. Zandolie is a single well, conductor-supported platform with a nameplate capacity of 40 MMscfd. Field development builds off existing Iguana field infrastructure enabling a more compact topside structure that is lighter and more efficient, the company said in a release July 13.
Powered by wind and solar, the 100% renewably powered platform was fully fabricated in the country and was designed to prevent methane slip in the transportation of gas during the extraction process and in its movement to DeNovo's onshore gas processing infrastructure within the Point Lisas Industrial Estate, the company continued.
Platform construction was completed at the United Engineering Services Ltd. local fabrication yard, and the drilling campaign was conducted by the local Well Services Rig 110.
DeNovo began gas production on its first field (Iguana) in November 2018 (OGJ Online, Nov. 28, 2018).
