BP in Trinidad and Tobago

With 15 offshore production platforms, we are the country’s largest hydrocarbon producer, accounting for about 55 per cent of the nation’s gas production.

BPTT believes that the key to long-range sustainability is building local expertise in all areas of the national energy industry – from exploration for oil and gas to the design and construction of platforms and the installation of pipelines

Matapal

Location: Trinidad
Operator: BP
Partners: 100% owned by BP Trinidad and Tobago which is owned by BP (70%) and Repsol (30%)
Project type: LNG
Start-up: 2022
Peak annual average production, gross: ~70 mboed
Peak annual average production, net: ~70 mboed
Project stage: Construction
The Matapal project will develop the gas resources discovered by BPTT in 2017 with the Savannah exploration well. The project will be a three-well subsea tie-back to the existing Juniper platform. The project production capacity will be 400 million standard cubic feet of gas a day.

bp achieves early gas milestone at Trinidad’s Matapal

bp Trinidad and Tobago’s (bpTT) Matapal subsea gas development has safely achieved first gas seven months ahead of schedule and under budget, despite constraints brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Initially, Matapal is expected to deliver 250-350 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) into the Trinidad gas market from resources discovered by the Savannah exploration well drilled in 2017.

Gas from this project will be pooled with production from other bp fields to be used as feedstock for the country’s ammonia, methanol and LNG plants, as well as for power generation.

bpTT president Claire Fitzpatrick said: “Natural gas will play an important role in the energy transition and to the economy of Trinidad and Tobago for decades to come. This is why our team at bpTT has worked diligently to safely start up our Matapal project, which we successfully achieved both under budget and ahead of schedule. We are committed to a strong energy future in Trinidad and Tobago and this project plays a critical role in delivering that.”

bpTT’s second subsea development, Matapal is a three-well subsea tieback to the existing Juniper platform, helping to minimize development costs and the associated carbon footprint.

It is located 80km off Trinidad’s south-east coast, 8km east of Juniper, and in a water depth of 163 metres.

With 15 offshore production platforms, bpTT is the country’s largest hydrocarbon producer, accounting for about half of the nation’s gas production.
