  • Shell takes Final Investment Decision on the Manatee gas project in Trinidad and Tobago, enhancing its LNG business and meeting global and domestic energy needs.
  • Production starts in 2027, with peak output at 104,000 boe/d.

July 09 2024 13:07:15 UTC– Shell’s subsidiary in Trinidad and Tobago, Shell Trinidad and Tobago Ltd., has approved the Final Investment Decision (FID) for the Manatee project, enhancing their Integrated Gas business by tapping into an undeveloped gas field in the East Coast Marine Area (ECMA).

The project will involve a Normally Unattended Installation (NUI) platform – in this context this refers to a minimalistic offshore structure designed to operate without a full-time human presence, often controlled remotely. The extracted gas would be transported via a long pipeline, about 110 km in length and 32 inches in diameter, to the Shell-operated Beachfield gas processing facility.

This indicates a substantial capacity for transporting natural gas. From Beachfield, the processed gas would then be distributed to various points: the Atlantic LNG facility for liquefaction and export, and also to the National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago, which handles domestic distribution.

Overall, this move aims to support the country’s gas needs and contribute to global natural gas demand, aligning with Shell’s commitment to sustainable projects.

Shell plans to increase its LNG business and liquefaction volumes by 2030.

The Manatee project is expected to commence production in 2027, boosting Shell’s LNG portfolio significantly.
