Trinidad and Tobago to help Cuba in search for oil and natural gas

Dec 20, 2009 01:00 AM

Cuba is stepping up its oil and natural gas exploration programme and Trinidad and Tobago, which earns much of its revenue from its own reserves, wants to give the region's only communist state a helping hand.

Foreign Affairs Minister Paula Gopee-Scoon made the announcement in a brief reference to Cuba's new exploration activity during the post-Cabinet news conference at the Diplomatic Centre, St Ann's.
Gopee-Scoon reported to Cabinet on her trip to Cuba earlier where she met with several senior government officials including Vice President Ricardo Cabrisas and discussed ways of improving the ten-year-old cooperation agreement between Trinidad and Tobago and Cuba.

"At this meeting we sought to begin the process of achieving greater degree of reciprocity and this is at the request of the Cubans as it is very important as well that Cuba benefits from the relationship and that it is not one-sided," Gopee-Scoon said.
"In the area of energy co-operation in oil and gas technology Cuba has embarked on an exploration programme and I am certain we can help them at this, at the early stage as well," Gopee-Scoon said.
