Caribbean Energy Alliance proposed by Trinidad and Tobago

In the recently concluded Trinidad and Tobago Energy Conference held at Hyatt Regency Trinidad, Trinidad & Tobago Energy Minister Stuart Young openly proposed a possible Caribbean Energy Alliance with Guyana and Suriname. This alliance can bring oil and gas resources from Guyana, Venezuela, and Suriname to Trinidad for export.  

According to His Excellency Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali, Guyana was considering government-to-government talks with Trinidad and Tobago to assign some offshore oil exploration blocks. This comes after the two countries signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) last May 22, after the conclusion of the Agri-Investment Forum. This agreement was intended for the CARICOM members to determine and find solutions to the difficulties brought about by the pandemic, especially in the agricultural sector. 

“We have been toying with a number of options. We have gone out publicly with the bid round and there is also that room we are looking at for government-to-government collaboration,” said His Excellency Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali at the Trinidad and Tobago Energy Conference and Trade Show. 

Mr. Steve Sinanan and Mr. Shazim Ali are proud to represent Excel Guyana’s Marine & Offshore Services Division at The Trinidad and Tobago Energy Conference.

As Guyana is gearing up to host its own International Energy Conference and Expo 2023 on the 14th – 17th of February at the Guyana Marriott Hotel, Georgetown, Guyana, the Government is seeking to establish connections with international investors by opening up bids and licensing for oil blocks. Guyana will receive bids for oil blocks until April from energy firms for its competitive bidding round.  

The International Energy Conference will commence for its second year and will connect energy professionals around the world to facilitate the exchange of ideas, propositions, and plans for fundamental advances in the energy sector. Excel Guyana will serve as a Silver Sponsor for this trade show.
