95 mboed peak annual average production, net to BP
“Delivered on schedule and under budget, Juniper is a major milestone in BP’s more than 50 years of investment in Trinidad and Tobago. It is the largest new project brought into production in Trinidad for several years and the second major project we have started here this year. Together they represent a significant portion of the new production capacity we expect to bring online in 2017.” - Bernard Looney, chief executive of BP’s upstream business
The Juniper facility will produce gas from the Corallita and Lantana fields located 50 miles off the south-east coast of Trinidad, in water depth of approximately 360 feet. The project includes the construction of a normally unmanned platform, together with corresponding subsea infrastructure.
The development is expected to include five subsea wells and to have a production capacity of approximately 590 million standard cubic feet per day.
Juniper is bpTT’s 14th offshore installation. The project has provided upwards of 750 jobs (at peak) at the fabrication yard, with up to 95% of the workforce at TOFCO (Trinidad Offshore Fabrication Company) being T&T nationals and more than half (55%) from the surrounding La Brea community.
BP has invested circa US$2 billion on the Juniper project. BP has been the largest contributor to natural gas production in Trinidad for over 50 years and is the country’s single largest contributor to GDP. In 2017, the production from Juniper will represent 14% of T&T’s gas production.
