bpTT and Atlantic LNG to start Trinidad onshore Compression (TROC) project
Petroleumworld 04 14 2017
The Trinidad and Tobago unit of BP (bpTT) and Atlantic LNG are set to move ahead with the Trinidad Onshore Compression (TROC) project.
The project secured approval after finalisation of key project agreements between the Atlantic shareholders and the National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago, as well as other upstream stakeholders.
Atlantic will operate TROC, which is completely funded and owned by bpTT.
The project uses an additional inlet compressor at the Point Fortin Atlantic LNG plant and will increase production from low-pressure wells in the unit's existing acreage within the Columbus basin.
In order to accommodate operations of the compressor, additional upgrades are planned to be made to bpTT's upstream facilities and those of third parties.
Atlantic, along with BP, will take up the majority of the construction work related to the project.
The TROC compressor at Atlantic will be completed and commissioned over the coming months, with start-up expected early next year.
Once operational, the project will be capable of delivering approximately 200 million standard ft³ of gas per day next year.
bpTT regional president Norman Christie said: “The TROC project is another demonstration of bpTT's long-term commitment to Trinidad and Tobago.
“It is also a clear example of bpTT, the government and many key players in the oil and gas industry cooperating to improve production and revenue for Trinidad and Tobago."
