Trinidad and Tobago has said as long as there is gas to be processed, it is interested in Ghana's oil and gas sector.

Prime Minister Dr Keith Christopher Rowley said his country is ready to get "involve" in the energy sector but added that is "will be determined by Ghana."

"But we certainly have an interest like that in other plants that we build, that the national gas company in Trinidad and Tobago would want to be involved in that,” he stated in an interview with Citi FM.

Rowley who was on a four-day visit to Ghana noted that his country has in recent times been exploring ways of collaborating with Ghana to develop the country's gas resources.

During his visit to the Atuabo Gas Plant together with President Mahama, Dr. Rowley said "The gas pipeline is something that will serve Ghana immediately. Trinidad and Tobago is in a position to provide the technical and other expertise immediately."

"We are small and we have limited resources but in the areas where we have resources (we have) a 100 years or more experience and experienced personnel. We can bring that to bear and on these projects immediately.

"You are larger in Ghana and you have the resource base, but in terms of dealing with some of the third parties, you are in your infancy… so, there is a tremendous benefit if we do these things together," he added.

Before he departed from Ghana to participate in an anti-corruption summit in the UK, the two countries signed agreements in the areas of General cooperation and Oil and Gas.

The first agreement was signed by the two countries and the second by the GNPC and the National Oil Company of Trinidad and Tobago at a ceremony at Flagstaff house.
