The signing took place on the sidelines of the 2024 Suriname Energy, Oil & Gas Summit and Exhibition, witnessed by Suriname’s Foreign Minister Albert Ramdin and Trinidad’s Non-Resident Ambassador Conrad Enill. Staatsolie Managing Director Annand Jagesar and National Energy President Dr. Vernon Paltoo were the signatories. 

The agreements include a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the joint study of sustainable energy projects and a Letter of Intent (LoI) for capacity building and knowledge exchange. National Energy said these initiatives aim to explore and develop sustainable energy projects and enhance expertise in both nations’ energy sectors.
