Jerome Dookie, the chief executive of the ammonia plant on the Point Lisas Industrial Estate that stopped production last week, says the company is willing to resume negotiations with its natural gas supplier, State-owned National Gas Company.
“We are willing to be transparent with Government and the NGC. As they encourage us to go back to the table, we are still willing to compromise to find a solution that supports all stakeholders,” Dookie said in a statement.
NGC shut off the natural gas supply to Caribbean Nitrogen Company (NGC) last Wednesday following the breakdown in negotiations for a new, long-term gas supply agreement.
The CNC statement said it was in “intense but good faith negotiations” with the NGC for the ten months to come to the agreement.
