Present and Future of Natural Gas in the Dominican Republic
Santo Domingo.- Experts from Trinidad-Tobago and Canada will voice their views during the seminar “Present and Future of Natural Gas in the Dominican Republic,” where the local market reveals the fuel’s increasing importance.
Trinidad and Tobago is one of the world’s leading natural gas producers and Dominican Republic’s nearest source, and increasingly used to generate energy, ant to power industry and vehicles.
In a statement, the Round Table of Commonwealth Countries in the Dominican Republic, which hosts the seminar, said four power plants currently use natural gas, accounting for 20% of installed capacity, and fuels 10,000 vehicles.
The Dominican Electrical Industry Association (ADIE) sponsors the seminar, together with the chambers of commerce of the U.K., Canada, Trinidad and Tobago and India.
The seminar, scheduled to start Thursday, June 6 at the Hotel Santo Domingo, aims to bring together those with influence in natural gas locally and abroad. “They’ll discuss ways to adequately develop natural gas in the Dominican Republic, since natural gas is a fuel that requires significant financial resources.”
Natural gas producers, marketers, technicians, among others related to the field have confirmed attendance to the seminar, as well as representatives from financial institutions in Commonwealth countries.
