Trinidad and Tobago

Energy & Natural Resources 

The Energy industries, particularly those in the Oil & Gas sector, are vital to the continuing growth and development of the Trinidad and Tobago economy.  KPMG in Trinidad and Tobago has invested in its energy practice over the past couple of years to achieve its goal of being regarded as one of the country’s leading advisors in the market.

 

Bringing together both local expertise and specialist resources drawn from other KPMG firms, including resources with first hand oil & gas industry experience, we are able to provide our clients with specific, tailor-made solutions to their complex business needs.

Why KPMG?

 

KPMG's Energy Practice is a multidisciplinary team with deep industry experience. We offer customized, industry-focused Audit, Tax, and Advisory services. Our industry-trained and highly qualified professionals focus on your specific needs and draw on international resources when required.

 

KPMG's Energy professionals serve organizations operating in the following sectors:

 

  • Oil & Gas
  •  Power & Utilities
  •  Energy Services

 

As growing demand for oil and gas puts increasing pressure on existing reserves, a renewed focus is underway to locate new resources, with a requirement for significant new investment in exploration and development activities. These activities give rise to a range of important issues, including:

 

  • managing remote location risk
  • rationalising costs
  • managing tax expenses
  • improving systems and processes.
