Enill: Investigations on oil spill in Tobago reveal vessel left Aruba for Guyana

High Commissioner for the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago to the Cooperative Republic of Guyana Conrad Enill says that there has been some mischief in communication in the matter of the oil spill in Tobago.

He said the Government is still trying to determine the owners of the vessel.

He stated that based on investigations thus far the vessel left Aruba to journey to Guyana.

However he has revealed that information on the matter has not been easy to glean, but he has confirmed that the Government of Trinidad Tobago has a national security team involved in the investigations into the matter.

Separately, the High Commissioner said Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and Barbados have good reason to be focused on intra – regional transport.

Dr Mohamed Irfaan Ali, President of Guyana, announced that shortly, the three countries will launch a ferry service to improve intra-regional transportation.

The President, who is the current Chair of CARICOM, was at the time delivering the feature address at the opening of the Guyana Energy Conference 2024 and Supply Change Expo on 19 February, where he highlighted how investments in transportation could be lucrative, and underscored the roles transportation and logistics play in regional integration, in achieving the goals of food security under
the 25 by 2025 Initiative.

Speaking on the Power Breakfast Show this morning High Commissioner Enill explained that the venture would be a lucrative one for Guyana and other countries involved.

He said a Fast ferry would also address other logistics between the island territories such as the customs infrastructure.
