The Oil & Gas Year Trinidad and Tobago 2019
TOGY is pleased to present The Oil & Gas Year Trinidad and Tobago 2019, published in partnership with the Ministry of Energy and Energy Industries and the Energy Chamber of Trinidad and Tobago.
This fifth edition covers efforts to resolve continued gas curtailments via cross-border deals and negotiations with Grenada, Venezuela and Guyana, as well as through renegotiated contracts between producers and the National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago, and new gas production from super-major BP and local player DeNovo Energy. The book also showcases the expansion of the main ports at Point Lisas and Galeota, NOC Petrotrin’s challenges and subsequent restructuring, and the domestic EPC landscape.
With gas coming on line from the startup of new developments throughout 2018, gas production has begun to rise steadily back up to previous levels. More gas is expected to come from offshore areas, such as acreage currently being explored by BHP Group. Trinidad and Tobago is awaiting the March 2019 start of commercial production at Caribbean Gas Chemical’s complex, which will increase the country’s competitiveness against other methanol producers in the Western Hemisphere. However, slowed gas production and feedstock supplies could potentially see the island nation pushed out of its position as the world’s top methanol producer.
The Caribbean energy landscape is also shifting, with countries such as Grenada, the Bahamas, Jamaica and, most notably, Guyana delving deeper into their own oil and gas activities, looking to offset production gaps resulting from the current instability of regional heavyweight Venezuela.
The Oil & Gas Year Trinidad and Tobago 2019 analyses this changing landscape and the approaches the country can take to maintain its competitive edge in the mid-to-long term, including the development of NiQuan Energy’s GTL plant and the establishment of the island nation as a logistics and training hub for Guyana’s burgeoning oil and gas industry. Key insiders interviewed for the book include energy minister Franklin Khan, Senator David Small, National Gas Company chairman Gerry C. Brooks, DeNovo CEO Joel Pemberton and Energy Chamber chairman Eugene Tiah, as well as many top players operating in Trinidad and Tobago’s energy industry.
Extensive in-depth analysis is supported by comprehensive maps, illustrations and graphs to create a market guide essential for players seeking to either expand their operations in or enter the Trinidadian market.
