Juniper subsea trees arrive in T&T

March 31, 2016

BP Trinidad and Tobago LLC (“bpTT”) announced today that all five subsea trees required for the Juniper project have arrived in Trinidad and Tobago. The Juniper
project is bpTT’s first subsea field development, located 50 miles off the south east coast of Trinidad. 

The subsea tree is a complex configuration of valves and sensors installed on the wellhead to monitor and control the flow of hydrocarbons. As an essential piece of equipment for the Juniper project, each tree weighs approximately 76 tonnes.
 
Assembled and tested at the OneSubsea fabrication plant in Johor, Malaysia with components and materials sourced from various locations around the world
including Malaysia, Singapore, USA, UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany, these trees are among the largest and heaviest ever built.

After being offloaded at the Labidco yard for testing, the trees will move to the offshore location for the bpTT Juniper field. Drilling of the five Juniper subsea
wells began in 2015 and was completed in March 2016. The completions activity currently in progress on all five wells will take place by 4Q 2016.

The Juniper project will have a production capacity of approximately 590 million standard cubic feet a day (mmscfd) of gas. First gas from the facility is expected
in 2017.

BPTT Regional President Norman Christie said: “The arrival of the trees is another significant milestone in the delivery of the Juniper project. BPTT has committed to maintaining investment in Trinidad and Tobago, and to further develop the offshore acreage once the investment climate continues to support further investments in the upstream.” 


Note to editors:
The Juniper facility will take gas from the Corallita and Lantana fields located 50 miles off the south east coast of Trinidad in water-depth of approximately 360 feet. Juniper will become bpTT’s 14th offshore production facility. Drilling commenced in 2015 and first gas from the facility is expected in 2017.

BPTT has a 100% working interest in the Juniper development. The project is bpTT’s first subsea field development. BPTT operates in 904,000 acres off Trinidad’s east coast. BPTT has 13 offshore platforms and two onshore processing facilities.
