BP takes delivery of offshore Trinidad subsea trees

Offshore staff

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – All five subsea trees for BP’s Juniper project have arrived in Trinidad and Tobago.

This is BP Trinidad and Tobago’s first subsea field development, 50 mi (80 km) off Trinidad’s southeast coast, and involves producing gas from the Corallita and Lantana fields in 360 ft (110 m) of water.

The subsea trees, each weighing around 76 metric tons (84 tons), are said to be among the largest and heaviest ever built.

They were 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, the UK, Ireland, Italy, and Germany.

Following offloading at the Labidco yard for testing, the trees will move to the offshore location.

Drilling of the five Juniper subsea wells was completed in March. Completions activity on all five wells should finish by 4Q.

Juniper will have a production capacity of roughly 590 MMcf/d (17 MMcm/d), with first gas anticipated next year.
