BP in Trinidad & Tobago
We may be part of a large corporation, but with our strong regional influences in Trinidad and Tobago, we’ve kept our own identity
What we doBP 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. We also hold production sharing contracts for 889,600 acres in Trinidad and Tobago’s deepwater acreage.
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, and gas sales average approximately two billion standard cubic feet daily.
Our people and partnersWe employ around 900 full-time staff and you can find our people working in the north at Port-of-Spain and in the southeast at Galeota Point.
Our business has shareholdings in Atlantic LNG's Trains 1,2 and 3 and 4.
BP Trinidad and Tobago also has partnerships with Powergen, Repsol, Trinidad & Tobago Electricity Commission and Atlas Methanol.
Community investmentAt BP Trinidad and Tobago, our social investment programmes are designed to foster mutual advantage and promote stable, thriving communities. With the aim of positively impacting the lives of all Trinidad and Tobago citizens, our strategic focus include Education, Arts and Culture, and Enterprise Development and the Environment.
Committed to creating sustainable progress, bpTT has shifted its focus from philanthropy to supporting long-term development. We are building capacity in local Non Governmental Organisations and Community Based Organisations through ongoing training, helping them to drive community improvement in their own areas.
We’ve also partnered with the University of the West Indies to develop an accredited geoscience programme.
