Feature Address By Dr. The Hon. Keith Rowley, Prime Minister of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago -Announcement of Drilling of BHP Broadside Well

BHP and the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago have a
relationship stretching back to more than two decades now. As the Hon. Minister of Energy and Energy Industries would have mentioned, in addition to work done in the shallow marine blocks in the East Coast Marine Area, BHP and its Joint Venture Partners were awarded nine (9) deepwater Production Sharing Contracts during the period 2012 to 2014. The award of contracts was then followed by the acquisition of 3D seismic data during the period March 2014 to February 2015, and the subsequent drilling of ten (10) exploration wells.
