Gov't due to sign agreement with Shell

Government is scheduled to sign a new agreement with oil and gas giant Shell next week.

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley will lead a Government delegation which will include Ministers from the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Energy, the Office of the Prime Minister, and some technical people from the National Gas Company (NGC).

He made the announcement at Thursday's Post Cabinet Media Briefing.

Rowley leaves for Holland on Sunday for a 10-day trip at the invitation of Shell. 

During the trip, he will also meet BP and Trinidad and Tobago nationals in London, as well as make a stop off in Houston to meet Shell’s technical people. 

Rowley indicated that while the visit to Holland is to sign an agreement with Shell, other issues will have to be raised with other companies.
