Rate this post

bp Trinidad and Tobago LLC has confirmed its Cassia C development has safely delivered first gas. Cassia C is bpTT’s first offshore compression platform and its biggest offshore facility. It will enable bpTT to access and produce low pressure gas resources from the Greater Cassia Area. The platform, bpTT’s 16th offshore facility, is connected to the existing Cassia hub which lies approximately 35 miles off Trinidad’s southeast coast. Cassia C is expected to produce, at peak, about 200-300 million standard cubic feet a day of gas. 

Ewan Drummond, bp senior vice president, projects, production, and operations said: “I am proud of our achievement to deliver this project while keeping our people safe throughout a global pandemic. Cassia C is a great example of bp’s resilient hydrocarbons strategy in action – providing the energy the world needs now and helping us invest in the energy transition. I would like to thank our team for their commitment in the safe execution of this project.” 

The Cassia C platform’s jacket – its legs and supporting frame – was built at TOFCO (Trinidad Offshore Fabricators) and installed in 2020. Its topside structure was built in the McDermott fabrication yard, Altamira, Mexico and was installed in 2021.
