BG Group has started up the first well and delivered first gas from its Starfish field in the East Coast Marine Area of Trinidad.
BG believes that production from this gas field will ensure a reliable flow of gas to the Atlantic LNG export facility, as well as the domestic market.
Garvin Goddard, President of BG Trinidad and Tobago, said: “With Starfish coming on stream in our 25th year of operating in the country, this is a great demonstration of our ongoing commitment to the safe and responsible development of natural gas resources. Starfish also shows our capability to deliver complex offshore projects. We look forward to our next period of growth and continuing our contribution to the economy of the country.”
The Starfish field, located approximately 50 miles offshore, is connected to the 3000 t Dolphin platform. The project was sanctioned in 2012 and has involved ongoing collaboration with local and international contractors. BG Group operates the East Coast Marine Area with a 50% equity interest. Its joint venture partner, Chevron Trinidad and Tobago Resources SRL, holds the other 50% equity interest. BG Group also has interests across the four Atlantic LNG trains in Trinidad. Its global LNG portfolio receives cargoes from trains 2, 3 and 4.
