Trinidad and Tobago’s Energy Minister Franklin Khan has died. Loop News said in an article on Saturday morning that a government official confirmed his death. A former energy ministry official also confirmed Khan’s passing to OilNOW on Saturday.

According to Loop News, last year, Khan skipped the 9th Extraordinary Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and non-OPEC Ministerial Meeting due to a “minor medical procedure”. In 2017, he also had a procedure done for heart-related issues.

Khan leaves to mourn his wife Laura, and two children.

See statement below from the Energy Chamber of Trinidad and Tobago:

The members, Board and staff of the Energy Chamber of Trinidad and Tobago extend our deepest condolences to the family of Senator the Honourable Franklin Khan.

The Energy Chamber has worked closely with Franklin Khan over many decades. He has spoken at many of our public events and conferences over many years and has always been willing to discuss ideas and policies for the development of the industry. He was passionate about developing the talent of young industry professionals and put a lot of time and effort into that objective over the past few years. Before entering the public service, he was a respected industry professional and has many personal friends and colleagues across the sector. He will be missed and mourned by friends and colleagues throughout the energy industry in Trinidad and Tobago and around the world.

The Energy Chamber of Trinidad and Tobago mourns his passing, and we wish strength and courage to his family, friends, and colleagues during this difficult time.
