A new pipeline to be laid on 188 miles of seabed will bring natural gas from Trinidad and Tobago to the Eastern Caribbean, the country’s Ministry of Energy announced today in a post-cabinet briefing.

The pipeline, which will be laid from Tobago to Barbados, is slated to cost around $300 million, the Ministry said.

Construction on the pipeline will begin next year, and is slated for completion by 2015.

Trinidad also announced that the country’s cabinet had authorized the Ministry of Energy, National Energy Corporation and the National Gas Company to enter into talks with companies including China’s SINOPEC on a methanol to petrochemical project.
