BP has made two gas discoveries offshore Trinidad – unlocking about 2 trillion cubic feet of gas.
The findings were registered at the Savannah and Macadamia exploration wells.
BP Trinidad and Tobago’s regional president said: “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.
“This is a testament to BPTT’s ongoing commitment to the development of our Trinidad and Tobago operations and the wider industry, and we look forward to the future portfolio drill-out.”
The Savannah well was drilled into an untested fault block east of the Juniper field in water depths of over 500 feet, about 80 kilometres off the south-east coast of Trinidad.
The well was drilled using a semi-submersible rig and penetrated hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs in two main intervals.
The Macadamia well was drilled to test exploration and appraisal segments below the existing SEQB discovery ten kilometres south of its producing Cashima field.
The well penetrated hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs in seven intervals.
BPTT has a 100% working interest in Savannah and Macadamia.
