    Questions are being raised about T&T’s energy future following a newspaper report on the fate of an offshore well.

    UNC MP Anita Haynes believes government needs to address allegations in the Trinidad Guardian that the BHP Broadside Well has not found oil or gas, two months after drilling began.

    Ms Haynes is urging the state to clear the air on the matter and confirm the fate of the project.

    She warns that if the report is true, it could have profound repercussions for offshore oil and gas exploration.

    The MP meanwhile wants a clear and comprehensive energy policy to be created by government, saying this is long overdue.
