Robert Clarke reports in the T'dad Guardian today (no link, because the Guardian still has no online archive) that senior managers at bpTT — the local branch of BP Global, & the largest energy corporation operating in T&T — have hinted at disapproval of Talisman's attempts to get permission for seismic exploration in the Nariva Swamp:

"BpTT’s Environmental Systems Manager Tyrone Kalpee yesterday sideswiped Talisman Petroleum (Trinidad) Ltd saying one thing his company does not want is to create an issue like the one surrounding the embattled Canadian oil company.

"Talisman has received an environmental spanking for attempting to conduct 3D seismic surveys in the Nariva Swamp."
