Low global oil and gas prices have left Trinidad and Tobago’s energy sector with challenges, and underinvestment in upstream exploration has resulted in declining production and gas availability, leading to downstream industries operating below capacity. Still, the country continues to attract strong investment from oil majors and independent producers. With the government and sector players committed to crafting an equitable new fiscal regime, a strong energy services industry and a new frontier in deepwater exploration, there is good reason to expect the sector to bounce back over the medium term. This chapter contains interviews with Derek Hudson, Vice-President, Shell Trinidad and Tobago; Mark Loquan, President, The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago; and Vincent Pereira, President, BHP Trinidad and Tobago & Chairman, Energy Chamber of T&T.
