BPTT Makes 2 'Significant' Gas Discoveries Offshore Trinidad
BP Trinidad & Tobago (bpTT) has made two ‘significant’ gas discoveries with the Savannah and Macadamia exploration wells, offshore Trinidad, according to a company statement.
The results of these wells have unlocked approximately 2 trillion cubic feet of gas in place ‘to underpin new developments in these areas,’ bpTT stated on its website.
The Savannah exploration well, which was drilled into an untested fault block east of the Juniper field in water depths of over 500 feet, penetrated hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs in two main intervals with approximately 650 feet of net pay.
Based on the success of the Savannah well, bpTT expects to develop these reservoirs via future tieback to the Juniper platform that is due to come online mid-2017.
The Macadamia well penetrated hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs in seven intervals with approximately 600 feet net pay. The Macadamia discovery is expected to support a new platform within the post-2020 timeframe.
“This is exciting news for both bpTT and the industry, as these discoveries are the start of a rejuvenated exploration program on the Trinidad shelf,” Norman Christie, regional president for bpTT said in a company statement.
“We are starting to see the benefits of the significant investment we have made in seismic processing and Ocean Bottom Seismic acquisition. Savannah and Macadamia demonstrate that with the right technology we can continue to uncover the full potential of the Columbus Basin,” he added.
