National Energy Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago (National Energy) was incorporated in 1979 to continue the government’s efforts at monetizing the country’s natural gas resources and developing and managing industrial, port and marine infrastructure. National Energy was involved in the construction and operation of the early petrochemical plants, and the port and marine infrastructure which service all plants on the west-coast Point Lisas Industrial Estate. In 1999, National Energy, a wholly-owned subsidiary of NGC, became an independent entity within the NGC Group of Companies, with a mandate to develop and manage suitable infrastructure in order to facilitate and promote the various activities relevant and appropriate to natural gas-related operations.
La Brea Industrial Development Company Limited (LABIDCO) was formed in February 1995 to develop the La Brea Industrial Estate for industrial activity. NGC holds 83% of the shares in LABIDCO while Petrotrin holds the remaining 17 %. The day-to-day management of the Estate is carried out by National Energy on behalf of NGC. LABIDCO’s vision for the La Brea Industrial Estate is to provide industrial land, port, logistics and bio-remediation services at competitive prices.
