Feature Address By The Honourable Stuart Young At The National Energy Resilience Vessel Commissioning Ceremony 2023

Distinguished guests, Ladies and Gentlemen, it is indeed an honour to be here to celebrate the induction of the National Energy Resilience into the Company’s fleet of vessels. I am especially happy to know that a state enterprise like National Energy is leading by example by acquiring the cleanest – environmentally friendly tug in Trinidad and Tobago. Congratulations to Dr. Paltoo and his team. While I regularly, and openly, repeat the importance of natural gas in the energy transition, I want to reassure the people of Trinidad and Tobago, that this government, is also fully committed to climate action through the reduction of our country’s greenhouse gas emissions.
