Had the Petrotrin refinery in Pointe-a-Pierre remained opened, it would have been benefited from the oil being found by Guyana.
The area’s MP David Lee says the facility would have been “significantly productive” with millions of barrels of oil being found and Guyana’s need to utilize refining operations.
Earlier this year, the refinery was bought by OWTU owned Patriotic Energies after it was closed by Government over a lack of profitability.
Mr Lee believes T&T’s energy sector has become unattractive and must work to become competitive again.
He says this was seen recently with BHP’s decision to build its platform for the Ruby project outside of T&T.
