Collaboration has emerged as a key theme in the global oil and gas industry, as companies struggle to reduce costs in a continuing low price environment. In the Caribbean’s leading oil and gas economy of Trinidad & Tobago, the theme of collaboration came to the fore at the 2017 Energy Conference.
At the 2017 conference major upstream operators committed to work more closely on industry-wide collaboration initiatives, while companies across the gas value-chain emphasized the need for collaboration if Trinidad & Tobago was to solve the gas shortage problems that have plagued the industry in recent years. With the development of the oil and gas sector in Guyana, Suriname, Barbados and elsewhere in the wider Caribbean, the issue of collaboration between countries was another major theme that came to the fore at the 2017 conference. Collaboration between the state sector, international oil and gas companies and domestic private-sector was also highlighted as a major issue for the development of the national and regional energy sector.
Given the importance of this issue, the Energy Chamber has chosen the theme Maximising Value through Collaboration for the 2018 Trinidad & Tobago Energy Conference. The 2018 conference will feature keynote speeches and discussion panels that will highlight the issue of collaboration among different stakeholders with the objective of maximising value from hydrocarbon resources in the Caribbean region.
The Energy Chamber of Trinidad and Tobago will host its Annual Trinidad and Tobago Energy Conference from January 22nd – 24th, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency, Port-of-Spain. The Trinidad and Tobago Energy Conference is the premier Energy Conference in the Caribbean and promotes vigorous debate and discussion among leaders of industry, Government and academia. Approximately 1400 visitors were in attendance over the three days of the 2017 Energy Conference – roughly three to four times more than other annual energy conferences held in the country. Delegates from the US, the United Kingdom, Barbados, Guyana, Suriname, Venezuela, China and the Falklands Island and the Dominican Republic, were participants. The conference attracts senior decision makers in the industry including the CEOs, supply chain, finance, and operations managers of the major upstream, midstream, and downstream operator companies in Trinidad and Tobago.
Next year, the conference is expected to be an even greater success as our 2017 post-conference survey indicates that 95 percent of delegates will return and 100 percent will recommend the conference to others.
What is clear is that the energy sector will continue to fuel the country’s growth and prosperity over the next few decades and mapping out a way to ensure sustained development amidst an ever changing global environment is pivotal. The sector is at a crucial juncture where it must evolve in order to continue being competitive.n green economy policy development.
