Signing of the first Local Content Charter – Trinidad & Tobago Energy Conference 2017

The CEOs of the major oil, gas and petrochemical companies in the country signed a charter today at the Trinidad and Tobago Energy Conference 2017, committing to work towards increased local content in their operations. The idea of the Local Content Charter is to create a voluntary industry-led process for companies to work together in this effort. They will also commit to work with other stakeholders such as the Energy Chamber and education/training organisations. In the past, there have been many individual company policies around local content – this represents the first time that they have committed to co-ordinate their strategies and work together.
