Major Infrastructure Projects

National Energy’s mandate includes:

Promoting and conceptualizing new energy-related projects

Developing new industrial estates and ports to facilitate investment

Owning and operating strategic national assets (marine terminals, ports, estates)

National Energy is currently in the process of design and implementation of Point Lisas North and South Industrial Estates.

A. Port of Galeota (Guayaguayare):

The Port of Galeota is being developed in two (2) phases. Phase I offers 5 berths with a total length of 529m of quay side and approximately 6.7 Ha of backlands linked with a 1.2 km long access road. Phase I provides facilities which are available on commercial terms to all users. Designed as a modern, centralized port meeting international standards for the upstream energy sector, the facility has been engineered with a 7.9m draft. Phase II will accommodate deeper draft vessels up to 12.8m.

The Port of Galeota is not only attractive for positioning domestic exploration and production for deep water, but also for staging operations in neighbouring Guyana, French Guiana and Suriname. When Phase II is constructed, shipment of materials can be delivered directly to the Port of Galeota, reducing inland transport and traffic congestion.

Phase II will support of the expansion of oil and gas exploration and production in the south-eastern peninsula while boosting employment.

The Port of Galeota will comply with ISPS for shipping and will meet all operational requirements for safety.
Estate Development

National Energy has been mandated by the government of Trinidad and Tobago to identify and develop new industrial estates and ports for location of petrochemical, inorganic and downstream industries. At present, no existing sites are available to locate additional investments and environmental compliance requires a large spatial envelope around plants. Therefore, new sites are needed to fulfil these standards.

Sites being developed are Union Industrial Esate (UIE), Point Lisas South East Industrial Estate (PLSEIE) and Point Lisas North Industrial Estate (PLNIE). Benefits to be derived from the establishment of new sites include attracting industries, foreign direct investment, employment, and revenues for the country.

UIE is located adjacent to the Pitch Lake in La Brea. It is approximately 1km from the existing La Brea Industrial Estate and comprises 150 Ha of usable land. The estate caters for a mix of natural gas-based industries, renewable energy investments and downstream projects.

PLSEIE and PLNIE are located East and North respectively of the Point Lisas Industrial Estate.
