Upstream Portfolio

Petrotrin has three sub-divisions within its Exploration and Production Division. The first of these is Production Operations which includes its Land North and East Coast (LNE) and Trinmar Operations.

The Land North and East Coast (LNE) Operations manage the Company’s own land holdings as well as its near-shore acreages on the East and North Coasts. The daily production average is 17,000 bopd.

Downstream Operations

The Company owns and operates the only oil refinery in Trinidad and Tobago. The Pointe-a-Pierre refinery processes 150,000 bpd of crude oil, of which 65,000 is available locally, while the rest is imported from Venezuela, Brazil, West Africa and Colombia. Finished products include liquefied petroleum gases, gasoline, jet fuel/ kerosene, diesel and heavy fuel oil.
