“NGC is unwavering in its commitment to secure Natural Gas through innovation and strategic partnerships, especially in these challenging times. This is notable because onshore Natural Gas production has been for so long overlooked in the sector.”—Mark Loquan, President of The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited
NGC signed a Natural Gas supply agreement with Touchstone Exploration’s subsidiary, Primera Oil and Gas Limited, for the supply of gas from the Ortoire Block. Gas will be supplied initially from the Coho field.
The agreement—hailed by Touchstone as the most substantial contract of its kind in that company’s history—will allow NGC to work together with Primera for the development, sale, and purchase of Natural Gas and Natural Gas Liquids.
A supply of Natural Gas from the Ortoire Block signals a milestone for onshore Natural Gas production, with the industry norm being offshore natural production.
Continuing to maintain its position at the forefront of energy, NGC is resolute in pursuing upstream efforts and coordinating work programmes across the value chain for the benefit of our energy sector here in Trinidad and Tobago.
