Shell Trinidad and Tobago announces that production has started on Block 5C in the East Coast Marine Area (ECMA) in Trinidad and Tobago.
This marks a significant milestone in the delivery of gas both domestically and internationally through Atlantic LNG.
“Today’s announcement strengthens the resilience and competitiveness of Shell’s position in Trinidad and Tobago,” said Maarten Wetselaar, Director of Integrated Gas, Renewable and Energy Solutions. “This is a key growth opportunity that supports our long-term strategy in the country as well as our global LNG growth ambitions.”
Block 5C, known as Project Barracuda, is a backfill project with approximately 25,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) (140 mmscf/d) of sustained near-term gas production with peak production expected to be approximately 40,000 boe/d (220 mmscf/d). It is Shell’s first greenfield project in the country and one of its largest in Trinidad and Tobago since the BG Group acquisition.
