Company Profile

We create national value from natural gas, and we are a valued partner in the global energy business.

As a valued player in our nation’s natural gas-based energy industry, NGC has a proven model of maximising resources for industrial development and long-term prosperity. It’s a winning strategy with applicability far beyond the shores of Trinidad and Tobago.

Incorporated in August 1975 by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago as a wholly-owned state enterprise, The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) is an energy company whose core business activities are the aggregation, purchase, sale, transmission and distribution of natural gas. NGC is an internationally investment-graded company with the financial flexibility to self-finance or access funding on the local and international markets. The Company has played a pivotal role in expanding Trinidad and Tobago’s gas-based energy sector and is strategically positioned in the midstream of Trinidad and Tobago’s natural gas value chain. NGC owns, maintains and operates the country’s transmission and distribution gas pipeline network of approximately 1,000 km which comprises both offshore and onshore segments. The network’s installed capacity is currently 4.4 billion standard cubic feet per day (Bscf/d) and supplies power generation firms, global scale petrochemical plants, and a wide range of light manufacturing and commercial enterprises.

Consistently profitable, NGC is a significant contributor of taxes and dividends to the national treasury. Through its investments, strategic partnerships and pioneering gas pricing model, NGC has successfully secured the profitability of the local gas-based energy sector, and catalysed the social, economic and industrial development of Trinidad and Tobago.

Through its subsidiaries and investments, NGC has strong linkages in the downstream and upstream sectors. Today, NGC leads a diversified Group of Companies that is evolving into a global business entity, working to develop a structure that supports its international vision and mission to create exceptional value from natural gas and related energy businesses through valued partnerships and arrangements.

The Group’s main subsidiaries include:

  • National Energy Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago (National Energy)
  • NGC CNG Company Limited (NGC CNG)
  • Phoenix Park Gas Processors Limited (PPGPL)

NGC is based in the world-class Pt. Lisas Industrial Estate, one of the world’s most outstanding modern natural gas success stories.

With a strong sense of responsible care towards its fence-line communities and environments adjoining its natural gas pipeline network and critical facilities, NGC has designed and developed perhaps one of the largest and most extensive corporate social responsibility programmes in the Caribbean. From the smallest village or town to the entire national community, NGC supports a wide variety of fields for the benefit of Trinidad and Tobago. Our support ranges from developing programmes in sport, arts and culture, education, youth empowerment and development and environmental preservation to sponsoring the initiatives of hundreds of non-governmental and community-based organisations.
