Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley met today with BP’s Chief Executive Officer, Bernard Looney, at the energy company’s global headquarters at St. James Square in London.

Minister of Energy and Energy Industries and Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister Stuart Young joined the Prime Minister at the meeting.

BP provided an update to Dr Rowley on their plans for future gas production including the sanctioning of new projects.

The discussions also touched on the progress of the Atlantic LNG restructuring negotiations which is expected to be finalized soon.

Both parties reiterated their commitment to working together to ensure the future of Trinidad and Tobago’s energy sector.

The Prime Minister used the opportunity to reinforce with BP that future fabrication of platforms and other infrastructure should be done in Trinidad and Tobago.

Mr Looney reiterated that Trinidad and Tobago remains an important asset in BP’s global operations and gave the assurance that the BP team would continue working assiduously with the Government on delivering a number of initiatives that would benefit both Trinidad and Tobago and BP.
