(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) — The Pointe-a-Pierre oil refinery could reopen in the coming months.
This is according to Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley.
Rowley said yesterday that a request for proposal (RFP) was being finalised for release to the international energy industry.
He said when finalised, a public notice will be issued inviting bids.
Rowley said selection of a successful bidder will be completed by the end of June this year.
“This process could see the new holding company making a recommendation to Government by mid-year, with this resulting in reopening of refining operations sometime later on, without taxpayer exposure,” he stated.
