BP Trinidad gas project

BP Trinidad and Tobago is preparing to launch a USD 600 million offshore natural gas project in July, in part to feed the Caribbean nation’s giant Atlantic liquefied natural gas plant. The gas facility, known as the Kapok project, will comprise a state-of-the-art, unmanned gas production platform linked to a new central processing unit in an offshore gas field, the company said. The central processing unit is capable of processing 1.6 billion cubic feet of gas per day in addition to considerable quantities of crude and condensate, the company said. The Kapok field has an estimated three trillion cubic feet of gas which will be brought on stream for trains two and three at Atlantic LNG, Trinidad’s major LNG plant owned by a consortium of companies including BPTT. Another aspect of the project now under way is the fabrication and installation of 48-inch pipeline some 30 miles long, capable of delivering more than one billion cubic feet of gas daily from BPTT’s offshore fields.
