Greater Angostura Phase 2 Starts Production Offshore Trinidad

BHP Billiton has started first gas production at its Greater Angostura project offshore Trinidad and Tobago. Gas was achieved with the completion of the field’s second phase of development.

The Greater Angostura project incorporates the Aripo, Kairi and Canteen oil and natural gas fields. The first phase of development, which commenced production in 2005, produces oil from Kairi and Canteen with the associated gas reinjected. The second phase of development consists of producing natural gas from the Aripo field.

For the second phase of development, a new gas production platform was installed alongside the existing oil facilities. The new gas facility has a design capacity of 280 MMcf/d of natural gas and should produce about 7.9 million cubic meters per day. The produced natural gas will be delivered to the National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC).

Located on Block 2(c), the Greater Angostura project is situated about 25 miles (40 kilometers) off the northeastern coast of Trinidad in 131 feet (40 meters) of water. Block 2(c) is operated by BHP Billiton with 45% interest. Project partners include Total with 30% interest and Talisman Energy with 25% interest.
