Quick Guide: Subsea Projects Offshore Trinidad and Tobago

Where is Trinidad and Tobago?

The subsea oil and gas projects are located offshore Trinidad and Tobago, which is a republic in the Caribbean. It consists of two islands located about 15 kilometers off the coast of northeastern Venezuela and south of Grenada in the Lesser Antilles. Tobago is located 30 kilometers northeast of Trinidad. The islands are separated from the South American mainland by the straits of Serpent’s Mouth and Dragon’s Mouth.

Trinidad and Tobago Subsea Oil and Gas

Extraction of petroleum, refining and petrochemical industry as well as bitumen (natural asphalt) extraction together with growing tourism form Trinidad and Tobago’s economic backbone.

Offshore Oil and Gas Projects and Subsea Production Systems

Subsea oil and gas field developments offshore Trinidad and Tobago is complicated, and it takes years from the initial successful geophysical and seismic surveys to first oil. Exploration drilling and the reservoir can be defined and the volume of oil and gas or condensate can be estimated. The Oil and Gas Fields Offshore Trinidad and Tobago layout can now be developed, including the design of the subsea production systems, foundation structures, pipelines routing and the topside oil production facilities and installations. After all the wells have been drilled and the subsea production systems are installed, the oil and production can finally begin.

Subsea Projects and Oil Field Developments

Below is a list of Trinidad and Tobago Subsea oil and gas field developments:

  • Savonette by BP
    Savonette is the fourth development in Trinidad using the standardised Cannonball design, following the “hub and spoke” strategy which provides low incremental development costs via savings through standardised design. Savonette will be connected via a 26-inch, 9km subsea pipeline to the Mahogany B platform where the fluids will be processed, and then exported onshore via the ...
  • Bombax Pipeline Development by BP
    pipeline development is part of an integrated initiative to develop BP’s gas resources from the East coast of Trinidad and Tobago. Bombax Pipeline Development, Trinidad and Tobago, BP, America(North),
  • Cannonball by BP
    The Cannonball field development provides gas for Atlantic LNG Train 4. First production started in 2006 at a rate of ca 800 mmscfd (140mboed) from 3 development wells. The Cannonball platform was a major milestone both for BPTT and Trinidad and Tobago. It was the first in-country platform fabrication, delivering a significant step change in local ...
  • Greater Angostura by BHP Billiton
    The development is part of Trinidad Offshore Block 2c. It is operated by BHP Billiton (45%) on behalf of Joint Venture (JV) partners Talisman (25%) and Total (30%). The group signed a production sharing contract on 22 April 1996, and acquired a 3D seismic survey in 1997. The discovery well, Angostura-1, was drilled in 1999. This ...
  • Cashima Field Development by BP
    The Cashima development comprises the Cashima field, discovered in 2001, and the North East Queens Beach field, discovered in 1975. These fields have been efficiently developed using a single unmanned platform of the same standardised design first used for the Cannonball field and then the Mango field. Cashima has a capacity to produce from nine wells ...
  • Red Mango Field Development by BP
    The Mango project is the first phase in the development of the Mango field hydrocarbon resources, discovered in 2000 off the South East Coast of Trinidad. The Mango facilities are based on the standardised Cannonball design, and developed consistent with the business “hub and spoke” concept. The Mango field has been developed using a single unmanned ...
