THE Prime Minister met officials of Shell in Houston, Texas yesterday, as he continued his overseas meetings with energy multinationals. A statement issued by the Office of the Prime Minister said Dr Rowley and his delegation received an update on Shell’s planned growth portfolios for TT when he visited the company’s Woodcreek Campus in Houston.
The presentations made during this working visit highlighted the significant increase in gas production from the Starfish field. Rowley previously visited Woodcreek in 2017. On that visit, he was briefed by Shell on its efforts to overcome the challenges it faced after the initial Starfish start-up did not produce results as first anticipated. Rowley and his delegation received a status report on the upgrade to Shell’s existing infrastructure.
