With a target of cutting emissions by 15% by 2030, Trinidad and Tobago’s Energy Minister Stuart Young and a team of officials met with executives from three major petrochemical companies to discuss the country’s potential for carbon capture, utilisation and storage. 

The officials were from Nutrien, Denbury and TT’s National Gas Company (NGC). 

A release from Young’s Ministry said Carbon Dioxide Capture for Sequestration (CCUS) or Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is aligned with the government’s policy to explore and implement low carbon solutions. 

Both Nutrien and Denbury offered assistance in this regard.

Nutrien was referred to as a valuable stakeholder in TT’s petrochemical sector as the company is a major producer and exporter of ammonia and urea.

Globally, Nutrien has made significant progress in reducing Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions from its facilities by capturing and utilising the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) produced for sequestration or for use in EOR.

Nutrien is currently partnered with Denbury in implementing its low carbon strategies. 

Denbury has been providing unique carbon solutions since 1999.
