High level discussions by the countries’ ministers of energy were recently held, according to Trinidad’s Ministry of Energy and Energy Related Industries. Energy Minister Franklin Khan, and his Barbados counterpart Wilfred Abrahams discussed “mutual cooperation with respect to energy matters”.

While the discussion centred on petroleum exploration, the two Ministers also discussed “the supply of small-scale LNG to Barbados”, read the government statement.
