The Trinidad and Tobago Energy Chamber has issued an apology after a map displayed during its Energy Conference this week showed a portion of Guyana’s Stabroek Block extending over the Guyana/Venezuela border.

The Chamber said the “erroneous” map was developed by Rystad Energy and shown during a panel discussion on the first day, titled ‘The role that the southern Caribbean can play in meeting the global demand for natural gas’.

“This error is regrettable, and the Energy Chamber unreservedly apologises for any confusion. A new map will be developed and disseminated,” the TT Chamber said.

Guyanese newspaper, Kaieteur News, reported that Guyana President, Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali was eventually informed of the issue and expressed disappointment to the Conference organisers, who then promised an apology.
