Following an agreement that would see Trinidad supply energy for power plants in Ghana, Trinidad and Tobago’s Minister of Energy and Energy Affairs, Carolyn Seepersad-Bachan, visited Ghana at the end of last month. The minister led a high-level delegation that included Larry Howe, chairman of the National Gas Company of Trinidad and Andrew Jupiter, president of the National Energy Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago. The National Gas Company operates 800 km of trunk line gas transmission systems with a capacity of 4.4 billion cubic feet of gas per day, and its 56-inch diameter gas transmission line is the largest in the Western hemisphere. Trinidad is also the world’s largest exporter of ammonia and methanol. Seepersad-Bachan met with Ghana’s Minister of Energy, Joe Oteng-Adjei and other officials.
