BP platform en route to Trinidad location

PORT OF SPAIN, January 23, 2017 – BP Trinidad and Tobago’s (bpTT) Juniper platform set off for its location off the south-eastern coast of Trinidad over the weekend, bringing the start up of the like-named project one step closer.

Once installed some 80 kilometres offshore in close to 110 metres of water, Juniper will be bpTT’s 14th offshore unit and the sixth platform it fabricated in-country. Trinidad Offshore Fabricators (Tofco) carried out the fabrication work on Juniper’s topsides. At peak construction, the company had more than 750 people working on the project, achieving a local content level of 95%.


The offshore structure will have a capacity of 16.7 mcm (590 mcf) of natural gas per day, which will be sourced from the Corallita and Lantana fields. A new 10-kilometre flowline will transport gas from Juniper to the Mahogany B hub. The project represents a value of some USD 2 billion.

“I look forward to seeing this project starting up and bringing much needed natural gas that can help alleviate the supply and demand imbalance in T&T,” bpTT Regional President Norman Christie said in a press release.
