Trinidad and Tobago’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) production dropped 23.2 percent year-on-year in September to 1.76 million cubic meters.

When compared to the month before, production at Atlantic LNG’s 14.8 mtpa Point Fortin facility declined 29.9 percent, according to the monthly data provided by Trinidad’s Ministry of Energy.

September LNG production marked the first monthly decline this year for Trinidad.

Trinidad’s gas production also dropped 11.5 percent in September, averaging 3.16 Bcf/d, marking the first monthly decline since October last year.

LNG production at the Point Fortin liquefaction facility located in southwestern Trinidad started to pick up last year helped by new upstream gas developments such as BP’s Juniper project and the onshore compression project.

These developments are helping Trinidad in reversing the negative trend in domestic natural gas production and are boosting LNG production at the country’s sole facility.

LNG sales and deliveries from the Atlantic LNG export facility came to 41.8 million MMBtu in September, a drop of 10.3 percent on year, the ministry’s data says.

Atlantic LNG is owned by BP, Shell, China’s sovereign wealth fund CIC unit Summer Soca and Trinidad’s state-owned company NGC.
