Typically NDT technicians and Inspectors are the frontline personnel in the detection, evaluation and reporting of the integrity condition of static equipment in various industrial facilities. However, in keeping with the old adage, “The Eyes Will Not See What the Mind Does Not Know”, these frontline personnel often are unaware of the root cause of the deterioration they seek to detect; added to this is the faulty application of the Codes, Recommended Procedures and Standards – which abound in the industrial practice today.
The Energy Chamber in collaboration with the University of Trinidad and Tobago presents a mini symposium on Enhancing Oil and Gas Production in Trinidad and Tobago. The event features thought leaders from academia and industry who will present on strategies and technologies available for promoting production.
While recovery commodity prices continues to linger below expectation, Trinidad and Tobago is also suffering from production shortfalls in both oil, and gas. Oil production has fallen below 80,000 bopd and gas production has fallen below critical levels which are need in downstream and in LNG sectors.

The Energy Chamber of Trinidad and Tobago hosts the Annual Trinidad and Tobago Energy Conference. Traditionally, the third day was dedicated to Green Energy, however due to the large interest in renewables and energy efficiency, the board of the Energy Chamber, decided to give the day the prominence it deserved by creating the first “Clean Energy Conference” in Trinidad and Tobago. The Clean Energy Conference is a unique 2 day event which will blend seminars and hands on experiences for participants. This conference concept has never been undertaken in the region before.
