Trinidad Express Newspapers: Editorial | Despite ups and downs … – Trinidad & Tobago Express


Having been appointed to act for his colleague, Energy Minister Frankie Khan, who has been out of service following medical procedures, Finance Minister Colm Imbert stood in at Sunday's ceremony to launch the Juniper natural gas production platform.

That the T&T economy remains energy-dependent remains the message coming from the Juniper “sailing away” event.

At Trinidad Offshore Fabricators, down in La Brea, a multi-storied, metal-scaffolding, platform, topped by super-large crane equipment, was finally being delivered.

The company reported to be “sailing away” on Juniper, bpTT, actually plays superstar roles in the upstream T&T energy drama.

Juniper platform’s impressive “topside” structure on Trinidad’s west coast, is dedicated to vital natural gas production on bpTT’s Corallita and Lanatan fields, 50 miles off the east coast of Mayaro.

Unmanned, as dedicated, the Juniper platform will serve as the “hub” for five undersea wells.

At the rate of an estimated 500 million standard cubic feet a day, Juniper should, by next April, be pumping landward gas amounting to a 14 per cent increase on current availability.
