Shell Trinidad and Tobago, a subsidiary of Shell, has taken its Final Investment Decision (FID) on the Manatee project, an undeveloped gas field in the East Coast Marine Area in Trinidad and Tobago, a prolific gas producing area.

The Manatee gas field will provide backfill for the country’s Atlantic LNG facility. Increasing usage at existing LNG plants is an important lever to maximise potential from Shell’s existing assets.

Zoë Yujnovich, Shell’s integrated gas and upstream director, says: ‘This project will help meet the increasing demand for natural gas globally while also addressing the energy needs of our customers domestically in Trinidad and Tobago.’ She adds, ‘The investment bolsters our world-leading LNG portfolio in line with our commitment to invest in competitive projects that deliver more value with less emissions.’

Manatee is due to start production in 2027. Once online, Manatee is expected to reach peak production of approximately 104,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
