BGTT readies new source for NGC and Atlantic LNG
BG’s unit in Trinidad and Tobago said it expects to up its supply to NGC of T&T as well as Atlantic LNG from a new source.
Responding to Trinidad and Tobago Guardian the LNG player said that reserves still remain undisclosed, but BGTT believes the Starfish is a major developments.
Fourth quarter of 2014 is set to be the period of first gas production from the Starfish field. BGTT also said the Starfish project consists of a ten-kilometre subsea tieback to the Dolphin A platform where the gas will be processed.
The field was discovered in 1998 and sanctioned in 2012 with BG Group and Chevron both holding 50% participating interest.
Right now, work is ongoing on the drilling and subsea tieback activities along with the modifications of the platform. This caused planned shut-ins of the facility with even more shut-ins planned for October but it will be done with minimal impact to gas production.
