Fossil energy Trinidad
Thialf successfully installs the Cassia Compression (Cassia C) platform on behalf of client BP Trinidad and Tobago LLC.
The installation is located off Trinidad’s east coast and marks a significant milestone in the Cassia C project.
The Cassia C platform will enable BP to access and produce low-pressure gas reserves from currently-producing fields in the Greater Cassia area, thereby maximizing recovery from these existing resources.
Heerema installed the Cassia C jacket in 2020 with Sleipnir, and on July 27, finalized completion activities for the installation of the topside, bridge, and flare structures. The transportation of the structures was also Heerema scope, and they arrived in Trinidad and Tobago on July 15 from the Altamira fabrication yard.
The topside of approximately 7,800 metric tons was installed first, with the other structures following. The next step in the project will be the hook-up and commissioning of the Cassia C platform. Thialf will now return to the North Sea to continue a busy summer season.
