BP Trinidad and Tobago (bpTT) is one of the leading oil and gas production companies in Trinidad and Tobago. We explore for, and produce oil and gas in marine areas off the east coast of Trinidad where we hold exploration and production licences covering 904,000 acres. An affiliate company BPEOC also has Production Sharing Contracts for 899,000 acres in two deepwater blocks off the north east coast. Through our heritage companies, Amoco Trinidad Oil Company and BP Amoco, we have been operating in Trinidad and Tobago since 1961, producing our first barrel of crude oil in 1972. We are now the country’s largest hydrocarbon producer, accounting for more than half of Trinidad and Tobago’s national production of oil and gas. Overall, our operations are responsible for the employment of a growing workforce both directly and indirectly through contractors and independent operators. Natural gas accounts for much of bpTT’s total hydrocarbon production.
