VIDEO: Juniper Tree Lands on Trinidad and Tobago
The video above shows one of the 5 Juniper subsea trees, weighing about 76 tonnes, arriving at the Piarco International Airport via a cargo aircraft.
The Juniper project is bpTT’s first subsea field development, located 50 miles off the south east coast of Trinidad. The Juniper facility will take gas from the Corallita and Lantana fields located in water-depth of approximately 110 meters.
All five subsea trees required for the Juniper project have arrived to Trinidad and Tobago.
The trees were assembled and tested at the OneSubsea fabrication plant in Johor, Malaysia, and are among the largest and heaviest ever built.
After being offloaded at the Labidco yard for testing, the trees will move to the offshore location for the bpTT Juniper field.
Drilling of the five Juniper subsea wells began in 2015 and was completed in March 2016.
According to bpTT, Juniper will have a production capacity of approximately 590 million standard cubic feet a day (mmscfd) of gas. First gas from the facility is expected in 2017.
