Ginger gas discovery : Trinidad & Tobago (BPTT) has pulled off a gas discovery through the drilling of the Ginger exploration well near the producing , offshore Trinidad.

The well is likely to be completed by the end of this month with the BP subsidiary to continue evaluating its results after the completion of drilling operations. Initial results so far have been promising, said BP about the Ginger exploration well, which was drilled into two untested fault blocks, east of the Cashima Field.

The Ginger gas discovery was made after drilling the exploratory well in water depths less than 300 feet, nearly 50 miles off the south-east coast of Trinidad. Drilled by a jackup rig, the Ginger exploration well intersected hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs in
fifteen segments, said BP.

Commenting on the Ginger gas discovery, Claire Fitzpatrick – BPTT Regional President, said:  “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.

“We are continuing to see the benefits of the significant investment we have 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 operations and the wider industry.”

BPTT has a 100% working interest in the Ginger gas discovery.
