T&T and Barbados to explore energy industry cooperation


    A working group will explore the possibility of energy industry cooperation between this country and Barbados.

    Recently, Energy Minister Franklin Khan met with his Barbadian counterpart Wilfred Abrahams to discuss mutual cooperation with respect to energy matters.

    The Ministers discussed the creation of a potential partnership in three key areas: joint petroleum exploration on the northern border of Trinidad and Tobago and southern border of Barbados; the supply of bitumen to Lake Asphalt of Trinidad and Tobago; and the supply of small-scale LNG to Barbados.

    The meeting ended with the agreement that a joint working group of technocrats from the respective Ministries will be established to facilitate discussions in the New Year.
