Jersey-based oil and gas company, Predator Oil & Gas Holdings (PRD) FOLLOW are continuing to advance the CO₂ pilot project on the Inniss-Trinity field in Trinidad.

The group, alongside joint partner Columbus Energy Resources (CERP) FOLLOW, reported on Wednesday that they had finalised and submitted a proposal to Heritage for the approval of a CO₂ injection at the field.

The facilitation of a planned pilot injection of CO₂ is suited to the Inniss-Trinity Field in order to execute an Enhanced Oil Recovery methodology at the site, a strategy both Predator and Columbus have been actively planning up until now.

Civil works at the site are planned in December this year, whilst Predator has ordered a number of long lead items to initiate the CO₂ Injection Pilot by January 2020, with initial results to be expected in Q1 2020. 

Paul Griffiths, Chief Executive of Predator, noted the team would be working “most effectively” alongside Columbus to advance what he described as “an exciting project”. 

Reflecting on the group’s objectives, Mr Griffiths said, “The Company's near-term focus is to prioritise CO2 EOR production growth by adding new CO2 EOR opportunities using the experience we have gathered to date on the ground in Trinidad. Adding new projects is not capital intensive and is consistent with the current risk-averse market sentiments.”

He added, “The signing of a Confidentiality Agreement specific to a new CO2 EOR opportunity is an important step forward."

Executive Chairman of Columbus, Leo Koot, similarly expressed his enthusiasm on behalf of his firm over the advancement of the pilot project, stating:

"Columbus and Predator continue to advance the CO₂ pilot project. We look forward to completing the civil works necessary for CO₂ injection in December 2019 and injection in early January 2020."
