Barbados, Trinidad draw closer

Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago are forging a closer relationship – one they hope will be profitable for both countries.

The deal relates to new gas and oil wells being discovered between their territories.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Mia Mottley and her Trinidad and Tobago counterpart, Dr Keith Rowley, expressed optimism that this new partnership would redound to Barbados’ potential as a gas-producing nation.

This point was noted especially by Rowley who revealed that the first set of wells drilled by way of exploratory drilling of Block 14, which is about 85 miles off the twin-island republic’s east coast but on Barbados’ borderline, have been successful which indicate to them that there was potential in that area and across the line in Barbados.
