The Juniper facility will produce gas from the Corallita and Lantana fields located 50 miles off the south-east coast of Trinidad, in water depth of approximately 360 feet. The project includes the construction of a normally unmanned platform, together with corresponding subsea infrastructure.

The development is expected to include five subsea wells and to have a production capacity of approximately 590 million standard cubic feet per day.

Juniper is bpTT’s 14th offshore installation. The project has provided upwards of 750 jobs (at peak) at the fabrication yard, with up to 95% of the workforce at TOFCO (Trinidad Offshore Fabrication Company) being T&T nationals and more than half (55%) from the surrounding La Brea community.

BP has invested circa US$2 billion on the Juniper project. BP has been the largest contributor to natural gas production in Trinidad for over 50 years and is the country’s single largest contributor to GDP. In 2017, the production from Juniper will represent 14% of T&T’s gas production.

BP begins production from Juniper project in Trinidad
Release date: 14 August 2017

Juniper is the fifth BP Upstream major project, and second in Trinidad, to start-up in 2017.

BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT) today announced first gas from the Juniper development, the fifth of BP’s seven Upstream major project start-ups planned for 2017. Juniper has begun production on schedule and under budget.

The project is expected to boost BPTT’s gas production capacity by an estimated 590 million standard cubic feet a day (mmscfd).

With an investment of approximately US$2 billion, Juniper is BP’s first subsea field development in Trinidad. It produces gas from the Corallita and Lantana fields via the new Juniper platform, 80 kilometres (50 miles) off the south-east coast of Trinidad in water approximately 110 metres deep. The gas then flows to the Mahogany B hub via a new ten-kilometre flowline that was installed in 2016.

Bernard Looney, chief executive of BP’s Upstream business, said: “Delivered on schedule and under budget, Juniper is a major milestone in BP’s more than 50 years of investment in Trinidad and Tobago. It is the largest new project brought into production in Trinidad for several years and the second major project we have started here this year. Together they represent a significant portion of the new production capacity we expect to bring online in 2017.”

Another major project in Trinidad, the Trinidad Onshore Compression project, began operations in April. In June BPTT announced that it had sanctioned development of the Angelin gas field, which is expected to start production in late 2019. BPTT also announced two gas discoveries which may support future developments offshore Trinidad.

“The safe start-up of production from Juniper is a proud moment for BPTT, and further demonstrates our commitment to helping improve production capacity for Trinidad and Tobago,” said Norman Christie, BPTT’s regional president. “We thank the Government, our contractors and the hundreds of team members across the globe that worked to safely bring Juniper on to production.”

Juniper is BPTT’s 14th offshore platform in Trinidad and its sixth to be constructed at the fabrication yard in La Brea, Trinidad.
