Unexpected declines hit BG’s offshore Trinidad & Tobago production

Offshore staff

READING, UK BG Group has reduced its proved and probable reserves offshore Trinidad & Tobago.

This follows start-up last December of facilities at the offshore Starfish gas field where production has been lower than anticipated, with only one development well now onstream. At the Dolphin field, decline rates have been higher than expected.

In the Santos basin offshore Brazil, two producer wells are currently connected to the 150,000 b/d Cidade de Itaguaí (FPSO 6) serving the Iracema Norte development. At present the vessel is producing 61,000 b/d.

Final integration works continue on FPSO 7 at the Brasa shipyard in Brazil, while FPSO 8 is en route from China and should arrive at Brasa in the next few weeks for a similar program.

Integration works also continue on FPSO 9 in Singapore. FPSOs 7 to 9 are all due onstream in 2016, BG adds.

Offshore Thailand, BG is a partner in the Greater Bongkot South Phase C development. Here the first two wellhead platforms began producing gas during 3Q with the third due to follow during 1Q 2016.
