The Catshill Field was being operated by A&V Oil, the company that was at the centre of the "Fake Oil" scandal and which last month lost its bid at the Privy Council to stop Petrotrin from terminating its contract. Petrotrin has since taken ownership of the Catshill Field.
Speaking at this week’s UNC Monday Night Forum, Mrs. Persad-Bissessar said the device was being used for pumping oil from a Petrotrin tank to a Catshill tank.
Mrs. Persad-Bissessar called for answers.
She also had questions concerning another contract which she claimed A&V Oil still has with Petrotrin. She said that's for the Moruga Field.
