British energy company BP said it expected a ramp up in natural gas production from its second project to come online this year off the coast of Trinidad.
Gas production started at the Juniper development about 50 miles off the coast of Trinidad. It's the second this year there and the first of its $2 billion overhaul.

"Together they represent a significant portion of the new production capacity we expect to bring online in 2017."

BP said operations at the Juniper facility would lead to gains in production capacity. The company operates 14 platforms offshore and two onshore processing facilities in Trinidad.
The company joined its industry peers recently in reporting a strong early 2017 recovery, after struggling through a 2016 market that saw crude oil prices drop below $30 per barrel.
