bpTT said Cypre will become its third subsea development. It will include seven wells and subsea trees tied back into bpTT’s existing Juniper platform via flexible flowlines. The Cypre gas field is located 78 kilometers off the southeast coast of Trinidad within the East Mayaro Block, in water depth of approximately 80 meters.  

At peak, the development is expected to deliver average gas production of 250-300 million standard cubic feet daily.

First gas is expected in 2025.
