Trinidad and Tobago is the industrial engine of the Caribbean, fueled by its oil and gas resources and sustaining a chemical hub that ranks among the world’s finest. Yet the island nation faces challenges: an increased dependence on unconventional petroleum reserves; increased competition from US shale gas; and a need to evolve its chemical output towards more value-added products.
