BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT) has given the green light to an offshore gas project 60 miles southeast of Trinidad.
Development of the Angelin field, at a depth of 65 metres, is going to cost about $500m.
It will comprise four wells tied back to the Serrette platform through 21km of new pipeline and BPTT anticipates daily production of 600m cubic feet of gas.
Drilling should begin in late 2018 with the first gas expected in the first quarter of 2019.
BP also announced two discoveries off Trinidad – at its Savannah and Macadamia wildcat wells. They unlocked around 2 trillion cubic feet of gas.
