- BPTT Begins Gas Flow Offshore Trinidad
Friday, August 26, 2011
BP Trinidad and Tobago (bpTT) announced the start of natural gas production from the Serrette field, offshore Trinidad. Serrette is located in 280 feet (90 meters) of water off Trinidad's south east coast. BPTT holds a 100 percent interest in the field.
Serrette is a normally unmanned installation (NUI). It was locally designed by Fluor Summit Engineering and constructed locally at the Trinidad Offshore Fabricators (TOFCO) yard in La Brea, south Trinidad. It is the fifth platform to be built locally using a using the standardized "clone" approach which has allowed bpTT to deliver these platforms with increased efficiency and significant local content. The Serrette platform and jacket were installed in 2010.
With Serrette, bpTT now has production from 13 offshore Trinidad platforms.
Production from Serrette is tied into bpTT's Cassia B hub via a 26-inch diameter, 32-mile long pipeline. The platform is expected to average 400 million standard cubic feet a day (mmscfd) of gas and associated condensate from five wells. Production from this facility will supply the domestic market and Atlantic LNG's liquefaction plant for export as LNG to international markets, such as the US and Europe.
BPTT President Norman Christie said, "The completion of Serrette demonstrates our commitment to local content. BPTT is proud to continue the tradition of local design and fabrication that we initiated with the Cannonball platform in 2001. We have also been able to refine the standardization concept by applying the lessons learned to improve design and delivery of each platform."
