gas reserve on production ratio
worldwide in terms of per capita energy consumption
Institutions & Energy Policy
The Ministry of Energy and Energy Industries supervises the energy sector.
The state-owned oil and gas group Petrotrin, which faced massive losses and debts, was restructured in 2018 and split into several companies under Trinidad Petroleum Holdings Ltd (TPHL): Heritage Petroleum (E&P), Paria (imports and fuel trading), and Guaracara Refining.
Trinidad has substantial gas reserves, estimated at 274 bcm at the end of 2020, which, however, only represent 8 years of production. Its oil reserves are more modest (33 Mt).
The prices of electricity in the residential and industrial sectors are regulated and have been quite stable since 2009. They are among the lowest in the world, at about US$4.7c/kWh for households and US$3.2c/kWh for industry (2021).
Graph: ELECTRICITY PRICES FOR INDUSTRY AND HOUSEHOLDS (US$c/kWh)
The country ranks third worldwide in terms of per capita energy consumption (around 10.5 toe in 2020 and over 12 toe over 2016-2019, i.e. nearly 10 times the average for Latin America and the Caribbean). Electricity consumption per capita is approximately 6 000 kWh (2020).
Issues & Prospects
Today, the gas reserves over production ratio seems insufficient to meet the rate of development and the growth in domestic consumption (8 years vs 38 years in 2000). A reduction in supply could lead to an increase in costs, which would undermine the competitiveness of downstream industries (ammonia and methanol).
