LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN
— Suriname is prepared to host its premier event: 2nd Suriname Energy Oil & Gas Summit to be held 28-30 June 2022 in Paramaribo. The final program is now available and more details can be found here on the main event website.
Note: Energy Analytics Institute (EAI) is an official media partner for the event for the second consecutive year.
Trinidad and Tobago
— Energy Analytics Institute (EAI) Quick Takeaway: Trinidad’s gas production is used as a feedstock for the country’s LNG, ammonia and methanol sectors. The country already exports many of these products to Europe and Asia and higher gas production could spur an increase in exports to these mkts, among others it already serves. Trinidad is home to one of only two LNG exporting facilities in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region, the other being in Peru, which now competes with the US for LNG mkt share. However, Trinidad has struggled to boost gas production in recent yrs and any production gains will do little to calm supply fears in the LNG mkt. Key to higher LNG exports from Trinidad is a decision regarding the restructuring of its four-train 15 mtpa Atlantic LNG complex which continues to operate w/ just three trains due to a scarcity of gas and disagreements between Shell and BP, key partners in the project.
