BP execs visit Trinidad & Tobago to discuss energy future

Several BP executives recently visited Trinidad and Tobago renewing the company’s commitment to the country. 

In a visit at the end of May, BP’s chief executive for upstream, Bernard Looney, COO for strategy and regions, Andy Hopwood, and regional president of BPTT, Norman Christie, met with Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister Keith Rowley, Minister Stuart Young, Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister, Colm Imbert, Minister of Finance and Minister of Energy and Energy Industries Franklin Khan and other Government officials during their visit.

At the meetings with the government, BP representatives discussed the progress the company is making improving production capacity and gas supply for the short, medium and longer term. BP also recognized the important role that government played in facilitating these projects and successes.

At an event held on June 1 to mark several milestones achieved by the company, BPTT announced exploration success in its Savannah and Macadamia wells and the sanction of its latest project, Angelin.

BP said that the 2017 start-ups of TROC, Sercan II, and the imminent start-up of Juniper provide near-term relief to the gas supply issues. The sanction and anticipated start-up of Angelin in 2019 will ensure that gas volumes can be maintained into the medium term and the exploration success gives confidence to maintaining gas supply levels into the longer term, post-2020.

“We remain committed to being the best stewards of our acreage and ensuring that Trinidad and Tobago benefits from our investments here. We will continue to invest in our people, in our technology, and in our operations to sustain production and to actively participate in the broader development of the country,” said Looney.

In Trinidad and Tobago, BP operates in 904,000 acres off the country’s east coast. It has 14 offshore platforms and two onshore processing facilities.
