NGC Welcomes Signing of Dragon Field Exploration and Production License

The National Gas Company welcomes the signing of the Dragon Field Exploration and Production License on Thursday.

It took place between NGC Exploration & Production Limited (NGC), Shell Venezuela S.A. (Shell) and Venezuela’s Ministro del Poder Popular de Petróleo (MPPP).

It says the signing of the agreement allows NGC a participating interest in the upstream development of the Dragon field.

All parties worked steadfastly and amicably to bring this significant signing one step closer to operationalizing gas production from Dragon.

Beyond the immediate benefits to be derived from the Dragon field, that is the potential to buttress gas supplies and by extension energy industry development ,  the signing has strengthened and deepened energy relations between Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela and opened prospects for the future development of other cross-border and across-border gas reserves between both countries.

NGC thanks the MEEI, MPPP, Shell and Petroleos de Venezuela SA (PDVSA), Venezuela’s state oil and Gas Company, for the unrelenting dedication and determination of their respective teams in executing the license agreement.

The company is excited to work collaboratively with all the parties to progress the Dragon deal and will continue to explore and leverage opportunities in support of its strategic objective of growing locally and internationally to maximise benefit to the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago.
