BP Brings Cashima on Stream off Trinidad

BP yesterday announced that natural gas production from the Cashima field, offshore Trinidad, started on December 15, 2007. This followed the first gas production from the nearby Mango field on November 17.
The Cashima development comprises the Cashima field, discovered in 2001, and the North East Queens Beach field, discovered in 1975, both in water depths of some 270 feet (80 metres) on the South East Galeota Block, approximately 45 miles east of Galeota Point. BP Trinidad and Tobago (bpTT) holds a 100 per cent interest in the development.
