Title: What did BP Charge
Comments: It is great news that BP has officially announced the new gas finds off the the south of Trinidad. This however,seems a rather quick find bearing in mind that it was only a few weeks ago the Prime Minister consented to the drilling here. Why was this not discovered earlier?. Why was it necessary to draw up another agreement with BP to search for gas that was supposed to be depleted by and expert, and why did the Prime Minister made a recent agreement with the Venezuelan government to supply this country with gas?. Moreover,why did the Prime Minister get involved with an agreement to build a very long pipeline to supply gas here?. Why could he not wait until BP had completed their survey, bearing in mind the speed in which they discovered these new gas fields?. Surely BP would have some idea of how long it would take for them to have some results. One thing that is missing out of the agreement with BP to search for more of our natural resources,and the building of a pipeline is the cost for their services and that of building the pipeline. Bearing in mind we are in a recession and every one has been asked to tighten their belts, could some one reveal the amount of dollars that are being paid to BP for their survey,and drilling,and the cost of building the new pipeline. Something that has been omitted for all the statements made on the BP agreement.Surely this is not a state secret,and should be of interest to our taxpayers.
