BP Trinidad & Tobago (BPTT) discovered natural gas with its 100%-operated Ginger exploration well offshore Trinidad, the company said in a news release Nov. 15.

Plans are for the well, which was drilled into two untested fault blocks east of the Cashima Field, to be completed by the end of November, the company said.

“The well was
 drilled using a jackup rig and has penetrated hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs in
 15 segments,” BP said, calling initial results promising.

“We are continuing to see the benefits of the significant investment we have made in seismic processing and ocean bottom seismic acquisition,” Claire Fitzpatrick, regional president for BPTT, said in the release. “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.”
