BP Trinidad & Tobago

(BPTT) has made a promising gas discovery at its Ginger exploration well, offshore Trinidad. 

The announcement was made via a statement from the company on Friday.

BPTT said the results of the Ginger well will continue to be evaluated following the completion of drilling operations, but initial results are promising. 

The well is expected to be completed by the end of November.

Regional President for BPTT, Claire Fitzpatrick said the latest discovery bodes well for the company and the gas industry.

“This is positive news for both BPTT and the industry, as these discoveries continue BPTT’s exploration success on the Trinidad shelf following the Savannah and Macadamia commercial discoveries,” she said.

Fitzpatrick noted that BPTT continues to see the benefits of the significant investments made in seismic processing and Ocean Bottom Seismic acquisition. 

“The Columbus Basin is a maturing province and the Ginger discovery demonstrates that with the right technology we can continue to uncover further resource potential in the basin.  

This demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the development of our Trinidad and Tobago operations and the wider industry.” 

The Ginger exploration well was drilled into two untested fault blocks east of the Cashima Field in water depths below 300 feet, approximately 50 miles off the south-east coast of Trinidad. 

The well was drilled using a jackup rig and has penetrated hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs in fifteen segments.  

BP Trinidad and Tobago has a 100 percent working interest in Ginger.

BPTT operates off Trinidad’s east coast and has 15 offshore platforms and two onshore processing facilities. 

BPTT is 70 percent owned by BP and 30 percent owned by Repsol.
