Stephen Whitfield, Senior


The Cassia Compression project, which includes the Cassia C platform (pictured), was one of two gas projects offshore Trinidad and Tobago sanctioned by BP last week. BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT) announced the sanction for two new gas developments offshore Trinidad, Cassia Compression and Matapal. The Cassia Compression project will enable BPTT to access and produce low-pressure gas reserves from currently producing fields in the Greater Cassia Area, maximizing recovery from existing resources. The project will involve the construction of a new platform, Cassia C. Gas production from the Greater Cassia Area will be routed to Cassia C for compression before being exported via the adjacent existing Cassia B platform. First gas from the facility is expected in 3Q 2021.
