Physical Infrastructure


There are two fully developed industrial ports at Port of Spain in the north of Trinidad and at Point Lisas in the south. There are also seven sector-specific ports that serve marine traffic. These are located at Pointe-a-Pierre, Chaguaramas, Point Fortin, Brighton, Tembladora and Scarborough. Another is being developed at the Galeota Peninsula.


There are two international airports, the Piarco Airport located in Trinidad and the ANR Robinson Airport located in Tobago.


T&T has an extensive network of approximately 8,320 km of paved roads that traverses both islands. Main roads and highways constitute approximately 800 km.

Industrial Estates

There are four industrial estates which are tailored specifically to facilitate activities of gas-based industries. The infrastructure is inclusive of natural gas supply, access to port facilities and related industrial services. These estates are the Point Lisas estate, which is being expanded to the south and east of the existing estate, the Union and Brighton industrial estates in south Trinidad and the Cove Eco-Industrial Estate in Tobago. Cove is the first gas-based industrial estate in Tobago. Several light gas-based industries are expected to take advantage of the availability of natural gas.

Gas Pipeline Network

NGC owns and operates a transmission and distribution pipeline network of approximately 1,000 km of onshore and offshore pipelines that has a capacity of 4.4 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d). This network transports gas from the producing fields offshore to final consumers on the industrial estates and elsewhere in Trinidad. Since 2010, NGC has embarked upon the construction of the following new pipeline infrastructure to upgrade its capacity and bolster the reliability and integrity of the network:
