Conrad Enill, the current Chairman of Trinidad and Tobago’s National Gas Company (NGC) is now the twin-island Republic’s High Commissioner to Guyana.
His appointment comes at a time when Guyana is amassing considerable natural gas reserves in the offshore Stabroek Block, and is planning a landmark project to pipe this to shore to cut the cost of electricity by more than half.
Enill is said to have considerable experience in the areas of energy, finance and business, having served as Minister of Energy and Energy Industries (2007-2010); Minister in the Ministry of Finance (2001-2006); and Senior Lecturer, Arthur Lok Jack Global Graduate School of Business, MBA Energy and Finance Program, University of the West Indies (2011-2022).
His Instrument of Appointment was presented by Trinidad’s Minister of Foreign and CARICOM Affairs, Dr. Amery Browne, who expressed appreciation for his willingness to serve Trinidad and Tobago.
Senator Browne was keen to note that the new High Commissioner would be guided by the Government’s policy framework, which underscores that the Ministry of Foreign and CARICOM Affairs and its diplomatic network of overseas missions must be the frontline of protecting the interests of Trinidad and Tobago internationally.
High Commissioner Enill’s appointment happened during the time Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley is visiting Guyana for the Regional Agri-Investment forum. While in Guyana, Mr. Rowley is expected to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for cooperation between the two countries.
