Trinidad and Tobago - Fiscal Balance

Economic activity declined year-on-year in Q3 on a contraction across most economic sectors, with the petroleum, petrochemicals and construction sectors leading the pack. Latest data, however, suggests the economy likely performed better in Q4 on a pick-up in LNG production. Moreover, methanol and ammonia production posted weaker declines in Q4, while the non-energy sector likely rebounded as suggested by a bounce back in cement production, a leading indicator for the construction sector. Moving to Q1, the Angelin project, BPTT’s latest gas facility located off the coast of Trinidad and Tobago, came onstream in late-February. With a production capacity of 600 million standard cubic feet per day, the operation will support the energy sector and investment.
