FFOS congratulates the Oilfield Workers Trade Union (OWTU) and their subsidiary Patriotic Energies and Technologies Services Limited in acquiring the Guaracara Refining Company Limited and the Paria Fuel Trading Company Limited. In an article titled “We will bring back affordable gas” in the Daily Express on December 19th 2018, President of the OWTU Ancil Roget has promised the return of affordable regular gas, should they manage the purchase of former energy company Petrotrin’s defunct Pointe-a-Pierre Refinery.
Further to this, in a radio interview on Power 102 FM this Monday, Mr. Roget again assured the public of the return of regular gas for fishermen.
Mr, Roget’s statement has created a reasonable expectation in our fishing communities. We look forward and patiently await the resumption of regular gas supplies and hold him to his promise to re-establish the availability of regular gas to this vital sector.
