Trinidad and Tobago now has only 12 years of natural gas left to supply the multi-million dollar gas-based projects in the country.
The country therefore needs to get more of the natural gas that is its main source of revenue into production in a hurry.
Energy Minister Dr Lenny Saith maintained yesterday there was no need to panic.
"Concern is not the word," he said.
And wot is de focking word cacahole?
Just two days after Prime Minister Patrick Manning said the time had come to see whether "new directions are called for" regarding the use of oil and gas, the Energy Ministry said an audit showed, at the present rate of production, there would only be enough gas to last until 2019.
You mean it won't even last till 2020?
Saith said yesterday the findings of the audit conducted by the Houston-based firm Ryder Scott for the last two years was not a doomsday prediction.
"Does it mean the country is running out of gas? No," he said.
Let we hear you explanation of no nah dumb-ass. Don't just give we a plain no.
At news conference held at Saith's office at the NALIS building in downtown Port of Spain, Saith led a high-powered team of energy ministry officials who gave a breakdown of the conclusions of the Ryder Scott report.
The report did not include an audit of oil reserves.
And how de fock you so fast to bawl no?
Oil fields can often contain natural gas which are classified as separate from fields where there is only natural gas.
The news conference took place days before Government hosts a two-day conference on the future of the nation's energy sector at the Hilton Trinidad next week.
At a People's National Movement public meeting at Maloney on Wednesday night, Manning said: "After so many years of a particular policy and the changes that are taking place internationally and domestically, ( like the focker making he own dictionary)the time has come for the PNM and the people of Trinidad and Tobago to review the directions we are taking on oil and gas and to see whether new directions are called for."
You reviewing directions to see if you need new directions? You mean you old directions was a piece of shit?
Saith said yesterday the Ryder Scott audit showed was there was an estimated 37 trillion cubic feet (tcf), identified as gas yet to be explored even though the existing known reserves had declined.
"So it is not a simple matter as if we are running out of gas. What it is saying is that you've got to do the things necessary to get exploration going where there is gas," Saith said.
How de fock you know it have gas if you still have to explore to find it, ignorassmus?
Asked what would be the ideal timeframe for new gas finds, Saith said: "The timeframe is you better get it by 2018 or 2020."
Somebody have to fund ta-ta bom bom lifetime leech PNM. Remember massa moving into he 140 million house by in-de-pen-dance, and he plan to stay dey till he body rotten dong to stink juice.
He expressed confidence that new finds would be made well before 2019 as two Canadian companies, PetroCanada and Canadian Superior and others were set to begin exploration.
Fifteen years ahead, and massa done have he people line up for de contract.
It was energy ministry senior energy analyst Stephen Cupid who announced that the audit showed based on a production rate of 4.5 billion cubic feet (bcf) of gas per day, "we are assured of gas to 2019".
It mean that after that dey aint sure if it go have a drop of gas left, dumb-ass Mr. Shite!!
