Trinidad starts natural gas curtailments for producers - sources

HOUSTON (ICIS)--Natural gas curtailments have begun again in Trinidad, methanol sources said on Friday.

Two sources said the curtailment represented a 15% cutback for users. Another source said the cut was 22-25%.

Ammonia sources said the state-owned utility, National Gas Co (NGC), began a 15% cutback at the end of May, not even two weeks after the last round of curtailments ended.  

NGC did not return calls or emails immediately on Friday.

Curtailments stemming from work being done on offshore platforms have been a persistent issue for petrochemical producers at the Point Lisas Industrial Estate in Trinidad for the past two years.
