BPTT Activity Update 2018

T&T Energy Conference 2018 - Activity Update
Presented by Michael Daniel – PGM Onshore Trinidad
Conference theme: Maximising Value Through Collaboration


I would like to thank the Trinidad and Tobago Energy Chamber for the opportunity to provide an update on BP Trinidad and Tobago’s activities. 
I’d like to start with a question: What is it that we all want?
I would hazard a guess that foremost on the minds of everyone here this morning is success – not mere survival.
Over the 3 days of the conference presenters and attendees would have explored different ways of achieving success in an energy industry that continues to evolve. In this session I will outline what BPTT is doing to achieve that success. I will also outline our achievements because it is important to place our activities into the wider context of our operations in Trinidad and Tobago. 
BPTT continues to pursue a robust investment programme and activity set which includes getting more from existing resources, seeking new opportunities through exploration, progressing new development projects and collaborating with other operators.
Our Area Development plan is robust and recently updated for 2018 and beyond. Our success is based on our delivery of this plan.

I will first take you through a brief recap of our 2017 successes. It was an important year of delivery for BPTT, a year in which we:
•	Achieved exploration success with our Macadamia and Savannah wells
•	Started up the Juniper gas field, our first subsea development.
•	Started up the Trinidad Onshore Compression Project (TROC). A huge collaborative effort with the local energy players.
•	Increased our production by 18%
•	Renegotiated our gas supply contracts with the NGC
•	Sanctioned the Angelin gas project and started fabrication of the platform
•	Completed upgrades of accommodation on the Mahogany B hub 
•	Continued work on the Galeota Expansion Project 

Yes, 2017 was a busy year!

Although I will be focusing on our 2018 activities this morning, it is important to demonstrate that we have delivered on the projects that we have been talking about in past activity updates.
Apart from representing a full activity set, these achievements were important because of their impact on production in the short term and as a strong platform for future activity.
In 2018, will see the continuation of some of the 2017 activity I have outlined. However first, I would like to spend some time on how BPTT is using technology to improve delivery in 2018.

Mindset and Technology
Technology is one of the key drivers for change in our organization as we enhance our management of existing infrastructure and integrate new technology into the design and implementation of new projects.
New technology is focused on harnessing the power of big data for example and facilitating collaboration among employees and teams within our region and across the globe. 

Here are some specific examples:

The Argus toolkit is a product of a strategic partnership between BP and ‘big data’ analytics company Palantir. The development of the toolkit is centrally managed and Trinidad and Tobago is one of the regions that has deployed the technology.
The toolkit provides a number of distinct apps that allow an engineer to make sense of perabytes of data, despite the fact that the data is stored in separate repositories. Palantir allows for real-time trending, engineering calculation, advanced monitoring, system modelling and optimization. The tools also foster knowledge capture and collaboration, facilitating rapid analysis and informed decision-making related to production management.
The system was instrumental to the smooth and successful start up of TROC and Juniper in 2017.
Since implementation, the system has been used in the start up of 3 new wells and 8 cyclic well restarts. In all, it is being used to simulate and monitor: 77 wells across our 13 platforms with a view to efficiently improving production. 

Return to Scene or R2S
Return to Scene or R2S is a powerful asset integrity management solution that uses 360 degree photographic images to provide a virtual walkthrough of a facility. A pilot photographic survey was undertaken at our Mango platform in June.
To date the benefits have included:
A reduction in the number of site visits by 22.
Reduction in platform POB by 220.
It significantly improves remote access and retrieval of key engineering information. Tags within images directly identify equipment and link to data and documents. This method of identification greatly enhances our ability to monitor and report findings.
Here are some of my colleagues using R2S.

As you can see this technology allows for a realistic, close-up view of the facility.
If you haven’t done so already, you can visit our booth for more information on these initiatives as well as other ways we are using technology to improve our operations.

Now onto 2018, I will now focus on some of our major activities for 2018
(Slide 7 – existing infrastructure)
1.	Managing the base production
Besides seeking out new technology to enhance our production delivery and operations efficiency, our strategy focuses on maintaining our base production through emphasis on safe and reliable operations. This means a relentless drive to keep improving our safety performance and maintaining our plant reliability which is currently above 98%.
(Slide 8 – Managing the Base - activities)
Our major integrity management and maintenance activity in this area for 2018 includes:
•	Turnarounds at our Cassia A and Immortelle facilities
•	12’’ and 40’’ In line Inspection on Mahogany B pipelines
•	A Subsea Integrity Management Campaign; and
•	Repairs to the Beachfield slugcatcher

In terms of drilling activity from existing infrastructure:
BPTT will continue a two-rig programme for 2018. Our proposed drilling programme for  will include:
Commencement of the Cannonball well programme in 1Q 2018. This programme is comprised of four new wells and one recomplete. The programme is scheduled to be completed in 2019.
The second  area of major activity is New projects
On the major projects front, our next new field development, Angelin continues to progress well. 

The Angelin field is located 60 kilometres off the south east coast of Trinidad in water-depth of approximately 65 metres. Angelin was originally discovered by the El Diablo well in 1995 and appraised by La Novia in 2006. 
The development will include four wells and will have a production capacity of approximately 600 million standard cubic feet of gas a day (mmscfd). Gas from Angelin will flow to the Serrette platform via a new 21 kilometre pipeline and then onto the Cassia Hub for processing.
McDermott International has the engineering, procurement, construction, installation, and commissioning contract.
Fabrication of the jacket and topsides is taking place at the Altamira fabrication yard in Mexico.
To date:
•	Fabrication is 71% complete 
•	Deck Fabrication  Progress: 74% 
•	The project is overall 65% Complete
Here is a video of the deck lift completed in October.
(video – deck lift – 50 secs)
The Angelin activity set in 2018 will include:
Mechanical completion in February
Jacket and topsides will arrive in Trinidad and will be installed in 3Q
Drilling is planned to begin in 4Q
First gas is planned for 1Q 2019

The Galeota Terminal facility was established over 40 years ago, and the GEP project will extend the life of this critical piece of infrastructure for another 20+ years. The facility receives all of the water and condensate from our offshore fields and will process these liquids into market quality crude/condensate and environmentally compliant produced water.
Activity at the project site began in 4Q 2016 and the project is currently 44% complete with completion planned in 2019.
GEP comprises a new Produced Water Treatment plant, new Condensate Processing facilities, a new Control Room, and a new Compressor and Flare system.
GEP is a vital part of our long term sustainability and is providing current and future benefits for company and country.  
To date the project has employed approximately 300 local workers with four local service providers working on the project.

Amherstia accommodations
Following on from the successful accommodations upgrade at Mahogany B in 2017, the Amherstia scope will be a close replica using the same team and contractors.  The new accommodation facility is currently 83% complete. Brownfield work to enable to the upgrades began in 4Q 2017.  
The activity set for 2018 will include:
Complete pre-works in 3Q
The new accommodations scheduled to arrive in Trinidad in 3Q
An Amherstia outage (to facilitate installation) is scheduled for 4Q
New accommodations installed in 4Q.

Cassia C
The Cassia C project will access low pressure reserves via a new compression platform bridge linked to the existing Cassia B hub.  This project is current in pre-sanction stage of the project development life cycle.  The additional production from Cassia C once sanctioned can be expected in the 2020 timeframe.

The third major area is Exploration

Our infrastructure-led exploration programme started off with great success in the Savannah and Macadamia discoveries in 2017. These are currently being progressed to the next development phase. 
The remaining wells in our proposed drill out schedule are the Ginger, Jasmine and Coconut Deep wells in the 2019-2020 time frame. We look forward to the results from these at a future date.
We have also continued to reap the benefits of our Phase 1 OBC data and added the Mancan exploration prospect to the back end of our Cannonball infill drilling programme in 2018. If this succeeds, this well could be brought online immediately for production.
We also continue to work with our partners in two further areas of exploration: the OBC Phase 2 programme in the northern area of our shelf acreage with EOG and the deepwater Barbados Trough area with BHP. We plan to drill an exploration well in each of those areas in 2018. 

Together with these activites sets BPTT also continues its Corporate Social Responsilbity.
BPTT Corporate Responsibility strategy focuses on four areas aligned to national development goals.  These include ‘arts and culture’, ‘education’, ‘enterprise development and capacity building’ and ‘the environment’.  We also provide social support interventions that are intended to improve the life chances of “at risk” youth in the country.  Programmes funded by bpTT are aligned to at least one of these focus areas.

This slide demonstrates the investment and impact of our programmes.
I would like to highlight two programmes:

1st - Brighter Prospects 
This is a programme geared to assisting students from the Mayaro/Guayaguayare area to pursue tertiary-level education.
Since 2003, BPTT has offered 540 scholarships with a 96% completion rate.
Graduates of this programme have logged hundreds of hours of volunteer work

2nd - Beyond Borders
The Beyond Borders programme was developed in 2010 through a partnership between BP Trinidad and Tobago, The Rose Foundation and the Ministry of National Security through its Citizen Security Programme. The programme provides organizational and community development skills to the residents of a number of communities such as Beetham Gardens, Farm Road (St. Joseph), Mt. D’or, Covigne and Embacadere. 
Since inception 14 communities have participated
– 87 NGOs have been formed and
– 20 for-profit companies have been incorporated generating approximately TT$15M in revenue 
BPTT monitors and evaluates the impact of its programmes to ensure that support reaches the intended beneficiaries.  For example in 2015, BPTT commissioned a tracer study of its Brighter Prospects Scholarship programme, designed to track the progress of graduates from the scholarship programmes at various tertiary institutions and to determine whether their experiences and outcomes were aligned to the specific programme objectives.

In 2018, BPTT will conduct a social audit of a select number of programmes. Monitoring and evaluation is increasingly important in an environment of scarce resources; the information from such exercises will be used to drive strategic decision-making in funding programmes; and reduce or enhance existing projects and programmes.

In conclusion
2018 will be a busy year for BPTT as we continue to execute our area development plan. Our activity set demonstrates the confidence we have in our people, in our infrastructure and in the technology we are using to deliver on our plans.
To recap, 2018 will be a year in which we will:
•	Continue to maximise production from our base through a focus on technology and drilling from existing infrastructure.
•	Progress our next development Angelin for first gas in 1Q 2019.
•	Progress work on GEP and Amherstia accommodations
•	Progress work on Macadamia and Savannah; and
•	Work with our partners on exploration 

Through our focus on maximizing efficiency in our base production and delivery of new projects and exploration we are building a platform for long-term success and sustainability.
Look out for more in 2019!
Thank you
